At SW1 Clinic, we believe in paying it forward.
We are proud and honoured to be avid supporters of a few charitable causes. These causes occupy a special place in our hearts, and we are thrilled to be able to lend a helping hand. Other than our selected charities, several other charity organisations have also received donated products from SW1 Clinic, be it for silent auctions from which 100% of the proceeds go to the cause, or for gift bags at specific charity drives.

SW1 Clinic supports:
♥ Singapore Cheshire Home
Founded in 1957, the Singapore Cheshire Home has consistently provided and attended to the needs of the seriously disabled with limited means and insufficient family support. The Home aims to provide for the care, rehabilitation, encouragement and well-being of these seriously disabled residents, and to give them a semblance of leading normal lives.

SW1 Clinic hopes that by pulling our weight, we can not only change our world, but also the world of someone who is less privileged than us.
♥Children’s Cancer Foundation
The Children’s Cancer Foundation (CCF) is a non-profit organisation, with a core mission to bring a better quality of life to cancer-stricken children. With cancer amongst children becoming increasing prevalent, the need for a foundation like this fighting the good fight is very real.
With dedicated programmes and services in place catering to the emotional and physical well-being of these children, the Children’s Cancer Founder is a shining beacon of hope for all of the youth afflicted with cancer.
♥Singapore Committee For UN Women
The Singapore Committee for UN Women is an independently-funded non-profit organisation geared towards women’s empowerment and gender equality. The organisation supports the general mission of UN Women by raising awareness and funding for Ending Violence Against Women, Economic Empowerment, and Governance and Leadership Programmes in Singapore and the region.
Established in 1997, the organisation was previously known as the National Committee of the United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM). In July 2010, the United Nations General Assembly created UN Women, the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women. As part of this process, UNIFEM merged with other women’s entities under the United Nations to form UN Women, bringing together resources and mandates for greater impact.
SW1 Clinic supports UNIFEM (Singapore) and their activities. The clinic has hosted UNIFEM on 30th September 2007 by organising an event day providing free facials and makeovers and a series of motivational talks for women in need. For more information, please visit https://www.unwomen.org.sg/
♥Handicaps Welfare Association
Founded in 1969, the Handicaps Welfare Assiociation (HWA) was formed with the intention of providing support and encouraging self-help amongst the disabled in Singapore. It is a unique organisation run by the disabled, for the disabled.
Starting out as a group of 23 individuals, the club has since blossomed into the biggest support group for the disabled in Singapore with 2,023 members as of 2015. What started out as a community providing social and recreational activities for the disabled, has expanded steadily into innovative projects and services catered to meet the needs of the organisation’s members.
SW1 has taken a leaf out of the HWA’s book, and is a firm advocate of giving the handicapped in Singapore a new lease of life, by adopting an open mentality of hiring disabled individuals and allowing them to be part of the brand.
