MINDS was founded in May 1962 by a group of philanthropists who saw the need to provide equal opportunities for children with intellectual disabilities to receive education and later, to be integrated as contributing and responsible citizens in Singapore. Since then, MINDS has grown to become one of the oldest and largest non-governmental organisations catering to the needs of persons with intellectual disability (PWIDs) in Singapore. MINDS run four special education schools, three employment development centres, six training and development centres, two homes, one hostel and a caregivers support centre as well as home-based care services to cater to the educational, vocational, social and welfare needs of people with intellectual disability.
