We are committed and passionate in developing a strong social service sector, and play key roles in shaping the future of Singapore. Through these efforts, we hope to play a part in helping our citizens achieve their hopes and aspirations for themselves and their families.

A career in MSF is a challenging and fulfilling one that allows you to make a difference in shaping the lives of Singaporeans. If you are driven and enjoy working in a fast-paced environment, we welcome you to be part of the MSF Family!

KidSTART was introduced as a three-year pilot programme in 2016 to provide upstream support to children (aged 0-6) from low-income families in the areas of childhood development, health and social service. As we prepare to expand into new regions over the next few years, the Ministry of Social and Family Development is setting up a dedicated agency to implement the KidSTART programme and deepen partnerships between the community and Government to give these children a good start in life.
