Singapore Children’s Society
Singapore Children’s Society protects and nurtures children and youth of all races and religions, especially children, youth and families in need.
Established in 1952, its services have evolved to meet the changing needs of children. Today, Children’s Society operates 11 service centres islandwide, offering services in the four categories of: Vulnerable Children Services, Children and Youth Services, Family Services, and Research and Advocacy.
To bring relief and happiness to children in need
To be a leading edge organisation in promoting the well-being of the child
Intended use of funds through the YFC 2018 programme
The funds would be distributed across our centres to help defray the operating cost of our programmes and services, enabling the society to reach out to more beneficiaries. Children’s Society operates 11 service centres islandwide with 69 programmes covering our four categories of services.
In 2016, the Society reached out to 74,173 children, youth and families in need. Throughout the years of Singapore’s growth and development, its services have evolved to meet the changing needs of children.
Our four service categories are as follows:
Vulnerable Children Services
– Protecting and guiding vulnerable children
Children and Youth Services
– Nurturing and inspiring our children and youth
– Supporting and strengthening of families-in-need
Research and Advocacy
– A voice for our children and future
Engaging and involving the YFC participants
We believe that volunteering gives one the opportunity to make a difference in other people’s lives, including your own. Through the process, one gets to meet people with similar interests, as well as from all walks of life.
With that said, we would like to invite our volunteers to visit our centres and help out at our fundraising events to better understand our cause and have the opportunity to interact with our beneficiaries. Our staff would also be happy to impart our knowledge and skills on fundraising, event planning and our sector.
We hope that our with the above activities, our volunteers will make friends, try new experiences, learn more about themselves, as well as experience the satisfaction of helping others and being a part of a community.
