How We Help

Through specialised care, education, counselling and rehabilitation, we provide essential support for children, youth and families in need, connecting them to a better future.

Singapore Children’s Society provides help through the four categories of: Vulnerable Children Services, Children and Youth Services, Family Services and Research and Advocacy.

  • Vulnerable Children Services

    We provide fundamental care and guidance to children as what their parents and guardians should provide. 

  • Children and Youth Services

    We provide value-adding care, nurture and inspire children and youth, to complement what their parents and guardians provide. 

  • Family Services

    We support and strengthen families in need by working together with them.  

  • Research and Advocacy

    We perform an advocacy role as the voice of children and their future.
