To promote mental well-being, the programmes and services of Epworth Family Welfare are aimed at addressing at-risk behaviours of children and youths. These programmes and services are designed to mend and build stronger relationships between family members, in particular, parents with their children and youths. The department works closely with the Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF) on various fronts.
Family Guidance Order (FGO)
Epworth Family Welfare provides intervention programmes and services to help parents facing challenges in managing their children and youths below the age of 16 years old. These Pre-FGO programmes and services are designed to work with at-risk children and youths on their challenging behaviours; provide parenting skills for the parents; as well as build better family relationships. Under the Children and Young Persons Act (CYPA) passed in Parliament in 2019, parents and their children will have to attend the Pre-FGO programmes and services before they can seek further assistance from the Youth Court.
