Because We Are Stronger Together
Beyond Social Services (BSS) is a Singapore charity and Voluntary Welfare Organisation dedicated to lifting children and youths from less privileged backgrounds out of poverty. We provide guidance, care and resources that enable families and communities to keep young people in school and out of trouble. BSS’s vision is to offer every child and youth in Singapore the opportunity to refuse a lifestyle of delinquency and welfare dependency by 2025 even if they hail from a disadvantaged background.
BSS currently supports around 10,000 families housed in government rental units within the Bukit Ho Swee, Lengkok Bahru, Henderson, Whampoa, Ang Mo Kio, Lavender, Stirling, Jalan Bukit Merah and Ghim Moh neighbourhoods. The organisation believes that every child deserves a chance to make their own way, and it strives to be there for them as a friend, mentor and support network so they can move past their socio-economic background and thrive as responsible adults.
To accomplish this, BSS seeks to nurture a positive environment where children and youths feel a sense of belonging so they do not feel the need to turn to negative influences. BSS also aims to create a culture of learning through different programmes, while also connecting caregivers with meaningful job and training opportunities.
A donor since 2018, APSS continues to work with BSS on their educational and development programmes to better the lives of these disadvantaged groups. As a corporate citizen, we believe in making a difference to the local communities and societies where we do business not just by creating value but also sharing it.
