BEYOND SOCIAL SERVICES
- Established with the aim to curb delinquency among disadvantaged young people and their families and to move them beyond their problems, Beyond Social Services helps to develop young people who respect the law, value education and seek to become responsible individuals. Started out as a charity based in Bukit Ho Swee in response to the poor living conditions aggravated by the 2 fires that hit the community in the 1960s, Beyond Social Services has come a long way to become a charity that runs programmes which are managed within their 3 departments.
- Problem De-escalation, one of the main programmes, focuses on providing children, youths and families with a restorative way of dealing with delinquency issues rather than through the legal system. On the other hand, Family Strengthening serves as a framework for serving children and families that is rooted in the principle that family is the most fundamental factor influencing the life and outcome of the student, through their Family Centre and the Hope Scheme. Community Integration then works towards the sustainability of competent communities where its members look out for each other’s well-being. This is carried out through their Healthy Start Child Development Centre, LIFE Programme, Youth United and Beautiful People. Other Support Programmes include Campland, Beyond Champions and Cafe Beyond, a support programme that provides hands-on training opportunities for youths to acquire positive work attitudes and skills and knowledge relating to the service industry.
