Strengthening Families

Strengthening Families

Helping parents provide guidance and discipline as well as instilling values in youths.

Parenting Programmes

Parenting programmes help parents understand the process of raising a child so they can become more effective parents and nurture stronger relationships.

MSF coordinates parenting programmes organised by:

  • Family Service Centres
  • Voluntary Welfare Organisations
  • grassroots organisations
  • community clubs
  • schools

MSF also supports these programmes in terms of funding, publicity, resource materials and speakers.

FamilyMatters! @ School 

FamilyMatters@School equips parents and young adults with skills to nurture positive family relationships. We work closely with schools, parent support groups and parent volunteers so that parents can easily get access to family life programmes that help them better connect with their children.

Student Care Centres (SCCs)

Licensed and regulated by MSF, SCCs provide care and supervision of school-going children aged

7 (Primary 1) to 14 years (Secondary 2) while their parents are at work.

Through homework guidance, play and enrichment activities, SCCs aim to foster physical, intellectual, emotional, social and moral development in children.
