SCORE recognises that work experience is an integral element in the rehabilitative process of offenders’ journey to reintegration.

Work programme for inmates is administered through commercially-run business units within prisons. It aims to cultivate positive work ethics, impart market-relevant skills and develop teamwork and communication skills for their eventual reintegration into Singapore workforce as productive and contributing citizens.

The work programme is implemented in 3 ways, namely through the Private Sector Participation Scheme, SCORE-managed business units and SCORE’s subsidiary, YR Industries Pte Ltd.

Private Sector Participation Scheme (PPS)

SCORE leases workshop spaces in prisons to private sector under the PPS. These private firms set up factories within prisons and provide management, supervision, equipment and technical expertise while SCORE and Singapore Prison Service (SPS) manage the rehabilitation and discipline of the offenders.
