Sengkang FSC

Sengkang FSC aims to support and strengthen individuals and families residing or employed within Sengkang estate (including Buangkok Crescent and Jalan Kayu) through providing casework and counselling service and support programmes focusing on strengthening families and community bonds.

Sengkang FSC @ Blk 206B is an extension to the main FSC located at Blk 223D. It is established to cater to the increasing community needs of the Sengkang estate.

Sengkang Family Service Centre serves the needs of the community through various core services:

Casework and Counselling

Our trained social workers and counsellors support individuals and families residing in our community who are facing financial, marital, parenting, as well as other personal and family-related issues and life challenges.

Information and Referrals

We provide information on resources and help available to Singaporeans in need. Through our engagement with the residents, we identify and link them to vital services to support and meet their needs.

Fernvale Satellite is an extension of Sengkang FSC’s information and referral services to residents in Sengkang South. It is held every Monday afternoon from 2pm to 6pm at Zone ‘H’ RC, located at Block 441C Fernvale Road.

Community Work and Group Work

Community Work and Group Work at Sengkang Family Service Centre (FSC) span across different age groups. Their fundamental purpose is to bring forth the strengths of our target participants and journey with them towards empowerment.

Children

Community-based programme I CAN! aims to reach out, engage and equip latchkey or unsupervised children, between the ages of seven and 12 years old, with knowledge and skills to better cope with their situation. Conducted weekly in September over four 1.5-hour sessions, children learn new skills to build confidence and resilience for self-care through experiential and educational activities. Core concepts include Identifying emotions, Communicate effectively, Affirming strengths and Navigating safely.

Conducted once a week in June, Protective Behaviours for Children (PBC) aims to equip children, aged between 10 and 12 years old, with knowledge and skills to keep themselves safe. Through experiential activities and purposeful sharing, children are empowered with the rights to feel safe at all times and to talk to someone they trust. Core concepts include emotional literacy, early warning signs, safety continuum, safe and unsafe secrets and touches, safety network and assertiveness.

Tweens Club @ Sengkang (TCS) is a weekly academic coaching cum mentoring programme for children aged between nine and 12 years old. Conducted on Saturday mornings by volunteers from NTU Welfare Services Club, TCS provides children with one-to-one support in their studies and teaches life skills through positive role modelling and activities that seek to build character and resiliency in children.

Youth

Teen-Edge Club (TEC) aims to provide a positive and safe environment for youth participants, between the ages of 13 and 17 years old, to develop their academic, leadership and social skills. TEC recognises that youths are at the developmental stage where having a positive age-appropriate mentor would benefit their social and cognitive development. The mentorship also aids in the youth's development of autonomy and sense of self.

Couple

GO! Learn About Marriage (GLAM) is a free introductory talk for couples who wish to understand about marriage, as well as the resources available to build positive marital relationship. Conducted in collaboration with Punggol FSC, the talk is held every first Thursday evening of the month.

BLISS is a series of psycho-educational experiential group work conducted to strengthen the foundations of couple relationships through achieving higher couple/marital satisfaction, which in turn strengthens the family unit as a whole. Since 2016, Sengkang FSC has collaborated with Punggol FSC to reach out and benefit families in the Sengkang region.

For enquiries, Sengkang residents can contact Sengkang FSC at 6312 8100. Punggol residents can contact Punggol FSC at 6453 5323.

Family

Nurturing Emotionally Strong Tomorrow (NEST) is a new collaborative initiative by Punggol FSC, Sengkang FSC and the Psychological Services Unit (PSU).

NEST consists of Little Brave Hearts, a therapeutic group work for children from multi-stressed families, and Big Brave Hearts, a psychoeducational group work for their parents. The group work is conducted over a course of 10 sessions. The programme aims to enhance the resiliency of both parent and child, while empowering parents to support their children in mitigating risks that the latter may face in their environment.

Little Brave Hearts focuses on helping children gain knowledge and practical skills to enhance their sense of mastery in the areas of emotional regulation, problem-solving and cognitive reframing, so that they can better manage their individual familial and life challenges. Through the structured joint parent-child components, the programme also hopes to increase children’s sense of relatedness by ensuring children have the capacity to reach out for support and in turn, receive support from their parents.

Big Brave Hearts is complementary to and held concurrently with Little Brave Hearts. Parents learn similar knowledge and practical skills in the areas of emotional regulation, problem-solving and cognitive reframing. The goal is for parents to master these skills and to support their children in enhancing their psycho-socio-emotional well-being.

For enquiries, Sengkang residents can contact Sengkang FSC at 6312 8100. Punggol residents can contact Punggol FSC at 6453 5323.

Individual

Life Coaching for Men (LCM)

Life Coaching for Men (LCM), a collaboration between Sengkang FSC and Punggol FSC, targets male participants who struggle with life stresses such as marital, employment and life events.

As a men's programme, LCM provides a unique advantage in helping participants to clarify their life stresses through a four-part monthly psycho-educational session. These sessions aim to impart members with the necessary skills and knowledge to cope with their life stresses, and provide participants a platform to share their personal experiences.


Community Engagement and Support

Outreach Team (OT) aims to connect with community partners and stakeholders within Sengkang to enable mutual understanding of service processes and explore areas for partnership. Sengkang FSC strongly believes that through the building of rapport and collaborations, there is potential in increasing the efficiency of service delivery and support to the residents of the Sengkang community.
