About SSVP Ltd
SSVP Ltd is an affiliate of the Society of St Vincent de Paul National Council of Singapore – “SSVP NCS” (which is also a registered charity since 1961.) SSVP Ltd was incorporated on 28 February 2019 to manage and operate select SSVP nationwide programmes and services that are operated centrally, providing specialised support needed by our Friends-In-Need (FINs), across Singapore. It is a registered charity and an Institution of a Public Character (IPC) with effect from 19/03/21.
Community Services Office
Our Community Services Office (CSO) is based in Agape Village and our social work professional help individuals and families seeking our assistance, by linking them up with appropriate Government and social services agencies and where required, recommend them to one of our Conferences (branches) for adoption as FINs so that they get holistic care. These social work professionals also provide guidance and training to our members in handling complex cases.
Annually, CSO manages more than 250 complex cases as well as assists SSVP members to provide case management support to 3,300 beneficiaries.
Milk & Diapers Programme
The Milk & Diapers (MaD) programme provides parents from low-income families with milk and diapers for their very young children (up to three years of age). Our members and volunteers also journey with the families of these young children. Our aim is to help the families reduce their hardships, ensuring their children do not go without basic sustenance and nutrition in their formative years. They also collaborate with Family Services Centers to provide more holistic care for these vulnerable families. In 2020, 180 babies and toddlers were on the Programme with plans to increase to 230 beneficiaries by the end of 2021.
In 2020 when Covid-19 restrictions confined school going children to doing home based learning, MaD initiated a collaboration with another charity Engineering Good and we obtained refurbished laptops to give to 150 FINs’ children. When the need arose, we recognised and responded to it and did what was necessary to support our SSVP FINs and their families.
