What is FamilyMatters! ?

Based on the premise that strong and stable families contribute to social stability and harmony, the Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF) initiates many family policies and programmes aimed at fostering a social environment conducive to family formation and the strengthening of family ties. FamilyMatters! is one such initiative that seeks to empower you with the resources, knowledge and skills to build a  strong, happy family; it partners schools, workplaces and community organisations to bring these resources closer to you at each life stage. It also works with businesses to create a family friendly environment for you and your family.


At the school level, FamilyMatters@School (FM@S) aims to equip parents and young adults with skills to nurture positive family relationships. MSF works closely with schools, parent support groups and parent volunteers so that parents can easily get access to family life programmes that help them better connect with their children.

Upcoming Event

Knowing yourself through DISC Personality Profiling July 2015


It has much to do with what we choose to incorporate from our own parents, our value systems, our support systems, our situations in life, our personality style & natural tendencies in communication.

By understanding our own styles & those of our children, spouse & colleagues through DISC Personality Profiling, we can increase communication and avoid some very predictable conflicts.
