Our Logo

     CARE Network Logo (New)

The concept behind CARE Network’s logo is "turning over a new leaf". This concept was also reflected in the theme for the launch of CARE Network – "Fresh Starts".

The green leaf represents ex-offenders, reflecting their willingness, strength and courage to face society. The red leaf represents the support of various agencies to help ex-offenders overcome their problems and reintegrate into society. Between the two leaves, the figure with outstretched arms represents society as a whole, and depicts the acceptance and support demonstrated towards ex-offenders. The heart shaped leaf is chosen to depict love, which is the basic underlying motivation of the various aftercare agencies coming together and working as a team to help ex-offenders.

In commemoration of CARE Network’s 20th Anniversary, we embarked on a review of our role, purpose and future direction. For more information on our upcoming plans, you may download our Digital Publication here.
