Why senior living / eldercare?

Our 3rd dialogue with the Arts Community, hosted by Chong Siak Ching, CEO of the National Gallery and Samantha Lo, Founder of Project XIV.

Our 3rd dialogue with the Arts Community, hosted by Chong Siak Ching, CEO of the National Gallery and Samantha Lo, Founder of Project XIV.

From working with up to 50 charities at once, we’ve decided to narrow our focus to address an issue that affects us all – an ageing population. As such, The Social Co. is dedicating the next five years to get to the root of the problem and work with the different industries to come up with effective solutions. Our industry-specific dialogues are closed-door, invite-only sessions where we want to get outspoken members of the community to share their thoughts. We’ve also handpicked attendees who we think have the potential to come together and make change. Each dialogue will have a moderator and be led by two individuals who are as passionate about social causes as we are, and exemplaries in their field. At every session, there will also be at least two or three seniors present as we’d love to get their input as well.
