Social and Family Research Network (SFRN)

The Social and Family Research Network (SFRN) was launched by Mr Chew Hock Yong, Permanent Secretary for the Ministry of Social & Family Development on 18 Jan 2018 at the Civil Service College.

The objectives of the SFRN are:

  • To promote a multi-disciplinary approach and greater expertise on social and family research through sharing of new research findings and developments;
  • To identify new areas of research interests and facilitate research collaboration between government and the research communities; and
  • To develop a stronger research and evidence base for social and family policies.

The SFRN is an expansion from the previous Family Research Network (FRN), which brings together academics and post-graduate students of universities and affiliated research institutes, social sector professionals, and policy-makers on social and family issues in Singapore.
