Family Services

We provide support to families in financial difficulties through professional case management. After case assessment by our Social Workers, families are linked up with financial assistance schemes such as our monthly Food Rations Scheme or other community resources.

  • The SECDC Grow Up Milk Powder Scheme helps low-income families with children between 0-3 years old with milk powder.
  • The MILK Scholarship is funded by Mainly I Love Kids to provide assistance with tuition fees and education expenses for resilient Polytechnic and University students from disadvantaged families.

Towards the end of every school year, BCS also awards bursaries to resilient students from low-income families who are studying in Primary and Secondary schools in the eastern part of Singapore as well as ITE College East.
