Get involved with NCA


NCA is a 100% not-for-profit organisation run on donations and by people like you, who volunteer with us. As with many charitable organisations, NCA and the charities we support cannot exist without volunteers. We need help with fundraisers, help with being there on the spot and help with your expertise and knowledge.

The more help we get, the more we can give back!

How can you help?

As a volunteer you can give your time and expertise by signing up to be part of the NCA committees or with the causes NCA supports. Everyone can sign up as a volunteer! However because some of our charities are privacy sensitive for the people we help, such as safe houses (H.O.M.E, Girls of Good Shepherd), some are only accessible to women. Yet we need a lot of help with all of our other projects, so please sign up today and help us giving back to the Singaporean community!

“Living here as an expat it is very easy to stay in your expat bubble.  But there is so much more to Singapore, and it is very rewarding to see you can actually make a difference in people’s lives”

“When I moved to Singapore I was struck by its wealth. It never occurred to me that there would be people here that have nothing, when others have so incredibly much”

“I want to save money from work and have a restaurant, and be happy with my family. My son is 6, his favourite subject is Math. Maybe he can become a doctor”

“As an NCA volunteer I didn’t just want to do fairs but go out and meet the Singaporean people who we are helping. That’s how you get a feeling of who you’re raising all that money for.”
