New Life Casework and Counselling
Providing Social Change and Empowerment to Individuals, Families and Communities to Enhance Their Well-Being
New Life is in partnership with the Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF) to support Ministry of Education (MOE) schools to help students who have behavioural issues and/or are at risk of dropping out of schools, as well as out-of-school youths to provide casework and counselling services under the Enhanced STEP-UP (ESU) Programme. STEP UP stands for School Social Work to Empower Pupils to Utilise their Potential. It aims to strengthen students’ social and emotional resilience, as well as help parents and teachers better manage and support at-risk students.
Currently, we are providing ESU to the following schools:
- Greenridge Secondary School
- Assumption Pathway School
- Bukit Panjang Gov High School
- West View Primary School
- Jurongville Secondary
Project Love on the other hand, is New Life's direct financial assistance scheme to ensure that no child is deprived of basic education due to financial hardship. Launched in July 2009 with a seed fund of $30,000, Project Love complements existing strategies for children and youth-centred programmes by providing casework and counselling to family units and ensuring that children and youths are kept in the education system.
