Family Life

The Family Life Champion programme was incepted in 2005 to promote community support for family formation and strengthen the social fabric. The Family Life Champions (FLCs) work towards building strong families and nurture a strong Singapore core with many helping hands through family-centric events and outreach programmes.  Together with various grassroots organisations, government agencies and community partners, the FLCs build communities of support to co-create a society where marriage and parenthood are achievable, enjoyable and celebrated.

Parents can also look out for a wide myriad of family bonding activities such as:

  • Embracing Parenthood Movement
  • FLC PLAY Programme
  • Baby Singapore
