Families for Life

Families for Life Council’s vision is to build strong and resilient families because that makes for stronger communities and better individual well-being.

What We Do

Families for Life

The National Family Council was first formed on 1 May 2006 to champion and promote resilient families. On 7 February 2014, the National Family Council was renamed as "Families for Life" to reflect its evolving approach to connect with Singaporean families, and to better mirror the Council's community-driven identity. Families for Life is a people-sector Council, comprising of 13 volunteers from the people and private sectors. The Council is headed by Mr Ching Wei Hong, Chief Operating Officer, OCBC Bank.

We Listen. We listen to the issues that Singaporean families are facing.
We Explore and Promote. We bring people and organisations together to create platforms for family bonding and to engage Singaporeans in conversations about families.
We Voice. We voice out concerns that people have on family issues and continue this conversation with our partners and the community.
