Mr Louis Ng Kok Kwang asked the Minister for Social and Family Development for each year from 2018 to 2021, of the new admissions to places of safety and juvenile homes (a) what percentage of these children live in public rental flats; and (b) whether the Ministry intends to collect this data if such data is unavailable. 
 
Answer 
 
Children and young persons (CYPs) in need of care or protection may be referred by MSF or ordered by the Youth Court to reside in a place of safety. The two juvenile homes – Singapore Boys’ Home and Singapore Girls’ Home – are also places of safety. 
 
2 Table 1 below provides the percentage of CYPs who lived in public rental flats based on the year of their admission to places of safety.
