VOLUNTEER WITH US

Giving goes a long way at Lakeside. We journey with our families who are facing incarceration, homelessness and problem gambling and empower them to stand strong. We organise events and activities to create opportunities for quality family time. We put together programmes to engage youths to gather and grow. We provide student care programmes and creative arts classes to ensure our underprivileged children are not neglected. We read to our little ones to bridge the gap and prepare them for school.   

Join us and together we can bridge the gap to build stronger families, better lives!
