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 15 volunteers from the people and private sectors. The Council is headed by BG (Ret) Ishak Ismail, Regional Director (Asia) of BAE Systems Hägglunds AB.
Families for Life Council’s vision is to build strong and resilient families because that makes for stronger communities and better individual well-being.
