Family Assist is a portal to provide support for couples should they face challenges in their marriage and need help resolving their differences, particularly those with young children. Whether you are open to saving your marriage or decide to proceed with divorce, you can find relevant and reliable information, services and support to help you to make informed decisions in the best interest of your child.
The portal’s initial launch is in Dec 2021. More content and services, such as information related to private housing and the enhanced Mandatory Parenting Programme (eMPP), which includes an e-learning module and self-assessment tools to help citizens better understand their marital situation and their children’s needs, will be included subsequently.
We work closely with our partners to bring relevant and reliable resources and information to Family Assist. Please click here for the list of our partners.
To ensure that the content of the portal is relevant and relatable to citizens’ needs, MSF engaged more than 100 citizens to seek their feedback on content that will be useful to couples considering divorce. These included citizens who had undergone divorce and citizens who were contemplating divorce but did not proceed with divorce. Through citizens’ feedback, we were able to better customise and refine the content of the portal so that it will help families achieve better outcomes, especially in terms of supporting the children who are often the most impacted. Some citizens had also contributed their experiences, which have been included in the form of stories in our content.
