Overview of Divorce Support Specialist Agencies (DSSAs) and Strengthening Families Programme@Family Service Centres

The Divorce Support Specialist Agencies (DSSAs) and Strengthening Families Programme@Family Service Centres (FAM@FSCs) provide specialised services and programmes for divorcing and divorced families. These support services include counselling and case management.

DSSAs/FAM@FSCs are staffed by trained counsellors and social workers. They are equipped with specialised skills to handle divorce matters. 

There are two DSSAs and four FAM@FSCs under the Ministry of Social and Family Development that provide support and care to families through a strong child-centric approach. 

The programmes offered aim to:

  • highlight the impact divorce has on children, and
  • encourage cooperative co-parenting.

  • Pre-divorce Mandatory Parenting Programme;
  • Information and non-legal advice on divorce-related financial and housing issues;
