SINGAPORE CHILDREN’S SOCIETY
- One of the charities with the longest establishment, the Singapore Children’s Society, established in 1952, have since evolved to meet the changing needs of children. 10 service centres islandwide today are operated by Children’s Society, and these centres offer four types of services – Vulnerable Children Services, Children and Youth Services, Family Services and Research and Advocacy. In these categories, 68,292 children, youth and families had benefitted from the Society’s comprehensive range of programmes aimed at addressing different needs.
- Some notable initiatives by the Children’s Society include Tinkle Friend, which is a national toll free helpline and online chat for all primary school children who need a listening ear and the trained staff and volunteers then provide support, advice and information to lonely and distressed children; Project LADDER that reaches out to families of inmates who may be struggling in isolation due to stigma associated with the incarceration of their loved ones, hence the project aims to allow children to maintain frequent contact with their incarcerated parents through tele-visits.
