TOUCH Diabetes Support (TDS) is a service of TOUCH Community Services, a not-for-profit charitable organisation was formed in 1992 to reach out to people living with insulin-treated diabetes.  TDS offers a community of care and support made up of people and families living with diabetes, volunteer healthcare professionals and many who have a heart for this community.


Diabetes is not a disability.  Whether it is climbing Mount Kinabalu or cycling to Kuantan or taking part in a triathlon, TDS's adventure learning projects, key of which is Project Discovery, have tested the tenacity and resilience of individuals with diabetes.  TOUCH Diabetes Support Centre at Toa Payoh Lorong 1 runs a range of activities catering to adults, youths and children with diabetes.
