Caregivers Alliance Limited (CAL) is a non-profit organisation in Singapore dedicated to meeting the needs of caregivers of persons with mental health issues through education, support networks, crisis support, tailored services and self-care enablement. While there are other organisations providing support to the community affected by mental health issues, only CAL focuses exclusively on supporting caregivers.

CAL was incorporated on 25 October 2011. Our founding members are Singapore Anglican Community Services, Caregivers’ Association of the Mentally Ill and BinjaiTree Limited.


In 2019, CAL won the Charity Governance Award 2019 (medium charities category), awarded by the Charity Council in recognition of it having adopted the highest standards of governance, in line with the Code of Governance for Charities & IPCs. In 2021, CAL was conferred the President’s Volunteerism & Philanthropy Awards 2021: Organisation of Good (Non-Profit Organisation) Category. Organised by the National Volunteer & Philanthropy Centre (NVPC), this is the pinnacle award and platform to recognise individuals, organisations and leaders who have achieved excellence in giving.


CAL is an approved Institution of a Public Character (IPC).
