Sunbeam Place @ Children’s Society

Sunbeam Place is a residential home and gazetted place of safety for children who have been abused and neglected and in need of protection, or whose parents are unable to provide proper care.

The children’s welfare, safety and needs are at the centre of its care. The Centre provides a home-like and loving environment for children aged between 2 and 21. It prepares the beneficiaries and their families for reunification through casework and counselling. For those who are unable to reunite with their families, Sunbeam Place provides a wide range of programmes to develop their strengths and skills to help facilitate a smoother transition when beneficiaries are discharged from the Centre and on their own as young adults.

Mental Health Literacy Programme

The Society’s Mental Health Literacy programme stems from the belief that mental health is a state of health, and it is an inalienable right that deserves to be promoted and protected.

Beyond awareness, mental health literacy is crucial to link knowledge to the possibility of action. Hence, this programme is designed for children, youth and caregivers to develop their knowledge, attitudes and behaviours in relation to various facets of mental health. Participants will be able to promote others’ and own’s mental health as well as to respond to others’ and cope with one’s mental distress/illness. 

Provided by Oasis for Minds Services*, the programme format includes:

  • activity booths for general public,
  • workshops for group learning, and
  • one-on-one Mental Health Check-in for children and youth

Oasis for Minds Services* provides a continuity of services from mental wellness promotion to accessible and recovery-focused services for children and young persons to develop positively and live in a safe and inclusive community.

Casework and Counselling

Children’s Society helps children, youth and families through casework and counselling at its service centres such as Yishun Family Service @ Children’s Society. It is normally provided when individuals or families are in crisis or under distress. The services may involve conducting interviews with individuals, couples and/or family members, making assessments and carrying out intervention plans. The services are provided by trained social service practitioners.

The goal of the service is to help individuals or families to develop insights into their situations, and better problem-solving and coping methods in handling and resolving their difficulties. Through receiving the service, individuals and families are helped to regain stability and independence.
