Staff Update – Welcoming Mr Alvan Yap, Advocacy Executive

Posted: 22 April 2013

On 18 April 2013, Disabled People’s Association welcomed a new member of staff, Mr Alvan Yap. Alvan joined DPA to take on the role of Advocacy Executive and will be working with the Executive Director to pursue new advocacy initiatives this year, including a public education campaign on transport issues for persons with disability and an event to celebrate the International Day of Persons with Disabilities and bring together other disability organisations. It is a good indication of DPA’s growing advocacy agenda that the team has had to expand. Alvan will also be handling DPA’s new Facebook page, blog and letters to the media. Alvan has many years of experience writing articles about the social services sector and has volunteered with SADeaf, the Singapore International Foundation as well as other VWOs and NPOs.

Staff Update – Welcoming Ms Nina Munday, Diversity and Inclusion Consultant

Posted: 17 March 2013

DPA welcomed Ms Nina Munday to the DPA team on 12 March. Previously she volunteered with DPA helping with advocacy initiatives and now joins us as Diversity and Inclusion Consultant. Nina will help develop a training workshop for corporates, VWOs and other interested parties to help them develop inclusive services and programmes. The workshops also hope to promote an understanding that the needs of people with disabilities are diverse and how these needs are met require flexibilities and adjustments to how we normally conduct our business.
