The primary objective of the Department of Social Services is to make marginalized and disadvantaged communities active stakeholders of national development by addressing the problems faced by them while enabling them to be self-reliant. In order to attain this objective, the Department formulates policies and implements research and development programmes from the national to grass-root levels. Included in a host of activities targeting the disabled community conducted by the Department of Social Services are the provision of vocational training, social integration and minimizing social problems encountered by such communities and the Department has also launched a programme for the residential rehabilitation of persons addicted to drugs.
