Who We Are

Yellow Ribbon Singapore

About Us

Formerly known as Singapore Corporation of Rehabilitative Enterprises (SCORE), Yellow Ribbon Singapore (YRSG) is a statutory board under the Ministry of Home Affairs.

Our purpose is to help inmates and ex-offenders rebuild their lives and lower the recidivism rate through skills and long term career development, with an effective Aftercare support network.

As the lead agency championing Hope, Forgiveness, Acceptance and Second Chances for ex-offenders, we strive towards building a safer and more inclusive Singapore.

Beyond Second Chances

Without second chances, a released offender will leave the first physical prison and find himself entering into a second social prison.

Therefore, it is not enough to give an offender a skill, we need to offer him a job that can lead to a long-term career. It is not enough to ask an offender to renounce his gang and past, his family needs to accept him back, and the community must be ready to reintegrate him.

However, ex-offenders are not mere recipients of second chances. When successfully reintegrated, they can pay it forward and actively give back to the community too. As individuals, or collectively as a community.

Individuals, organisations and employers do not just offer second chances when they can accept an ex-offender. In fact, their actions inspire others as well. Together, our collective effort can build a safer and more inclusive society.

At Yellow Ribbon Singapore, we aim to build a community where ex-offenders are empowered to look beyond their past and towards the future. The journey is for them to make but we ensure that it would not be a lonely one.

Join us, our friends and partners, as we embark on this exciting journey of Beyond Second Chances.
