– Supporting and Strengthening Our Families in Need
We support and strengthen families in need by working together with them.
Casework and Counselling
Children's Society helps children, youth and families through casework and counselling at our service centres such as Yishun Family Service @ Children's Society. It is normally provided when individuals or families are in crisis or under distress. The services may involve conducting interviews with individuals, couples and/or family members, making assessments and carrying out intervention
plans. The services are provided by trained social service practitioners.
The goal of the service is to help individuals or families to develop insights into their situations, and better problem-solving and coping methods in handling and resolving their difficulties. Through receiving the service, individuals and families are helped to
regain stability and independence.
Children's Medical Fund
Working closely with medical social workers of restructured hospitals and agencies, we provide subsidies for treatments and rehabilitative care for chronically ill children. Beneficiaries would include infants, children and adolescents up to 19 years of age.
Project LADDER reaches out to families of inmates who may be struggling in isolation due to the stigma associated with the incarceration of their loved ones. A joint project with the Singapore Prison Service, Project LADDER allows children whose parents are incarcerated to maintain frequent contact through tele-visits from our premises. The sessions provide our social workers an in-road to engage the families, especially children, and assess if they are coping well with the situation.
Talks, Workshops and Programmes (Adults)
We conduct programmes to impart knowledge and skills to parents to better manage their children, in turn promotes the overall well-being of children, youth, parents and families. Children's Society also conducts training for teachers with the objective of imparting knowledge and skills to these professionals who are tasked to mould our future generations.
