Singapore Children's Society
Founded in 1952, Singapore Children's Society was established during the post-war years of Singapore to provide shelter, comfort and relief to the children. During those initial years, children were sickly and malnourished, and parents often lacked the means or education to provide proper care.
This was highlighted by a group of expatriates and concerned citizens in a letter to The Straits Times on 6 February 1952, which called for the formation of a body to look into the welfare of children. Singapore Children's Society protects and nurtures children and youth of all races and religions.
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. 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.
