Pre-Budget Forum 2016
Over the past year, a lively discussion on caregiving and eldercare has taken place, both in national newspapers as well as online. There is increasing consensus that given the ageing population, there should be more state support for caregiving and better quality care. What does this discussion imply for our budgetary allocations? Is public support for caregiving a cost or an investment? How does this affect women?
Join us on 18 February (7.30 to 9.30 pm) to give your comments on AWARE’s recommendations for the Singapore Budget 2016. As in the previous six years, AWARE is organising this Pre-Budget Forum as a platform to hear and and incorporate your views in our recommendations. This year, we recommend increased public support for family caregivers – mostly women – so that society as a whole would benefit from such an investment.
Vivienne Wee (AWARE’s Research and Advocacy Director) will be presenting AWARE’s recommendations for Singapore Budget 2016.These will be commented upon by Mr Yeoh Lam Keong, Dr Linda Lim, and Dr Teo You Yenn.
