      A skills-based workshop that will equip you and your children with ways to manage feelings and develop resilience during a divorce. This programme is mandated by the Family Justice Court and Syariah Court, and also on a voluntary basis. 

      Court Mandated Programmes

      We help families facilitate collaborative co-parenting.

      Mandatory Co-Parenting Programme 

      We provide guidance for parents who are divorcing under the Women’s Charter and are unable to agree on the terms of divorce. We help you to: 

      • Make an informed decision on divorce 
      • Prioritise your children’s interests with knowledge and awareness about the practical considerations of divorce (e.g., housing, finance and care arrangements)  
      • Understand the importance of positive co-parenting  

      Programme structure:  

      Parenting PACT Programme (PP) 

      Mandated by the Family Justice Court, this programme is conducted for divorced parents with children who are below 21 years old. 

      We help you to:

      • Understand the importance of positive co-parenting
      • Learn how to better manage your emotions and co-parent your children
      • Gain awareness of the community support resources available
      • Understand the impact of divorce on your children (i.e. a self-assessment to measure the early risk factors and to seek the necessary support)

      Programme structure: 

      • A 2-hour group consultation
      • Both parents are mandated by the Court to attend. Divorced parents who are required to attend this programme will receive a notification by post.

      Supervised Exchange and Supervised Visitation (SESV) Programme

      We provide a safe, supervised environment for divorcing and divorced parents to meet and interact with their children below 21 years old. 

      Through the SESV programme, we help you co-parent effectively and build secure parent-child relationships over time, without compromising your children’s personal and emotional safety. This helps you to work towards independent and amicable child access.

      A. Supervised Exchange  

      We provide a safe and supervised environment for both parents to drop off and pick up their children during handover. 

      • The duration and frequency of visits are determined by the Family Justice Court  
      • Each court order may be up to 8 sessions  

      B. Supervised Visitation 

      We provide a conducive space for children and their parents to interact by setting ground rules and safety measures in the centre.

      • The frequency of visits is determined by the Family Justice Court  
      • Each court order may be up to 8 sessions  
      • Duration is up to 2 hours per session subject to safety concerns 


      To summarise what I have been through for the past 8 weeks: the case worker and the staff are very helpful. The staff, especially Lena, was very helpful and gave me necessary support when I needed it. 

      Mr Khan, Service User

      I think one of Samantha’s strong points is she can empathise very well with my stress and pain, especially when I talk about my boy. I hope she can keep up the good work and continue to provide emotional support to others in distress. 

      Kwek, Service User

      I really appreciate the help given to me during my difficult time.

      C.H, Service User

      Friendly, helpful, timely.
