Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF)
MSF started out as a social welfare department to address malnutrition during the Japanese Occupation. Since then, MSF have gone through many mergers and portfolio changes. Working with community and social service partners, MSF strives to support individuals and families through sound social policies and effective initiatives that target their needs.
MSF develops the “heartware” for Singapore through its policies, community infrastructure, programmes and services. MSF’s mission is to nurture a resilient and caring society that can overcome challenges together.
Previously known as the Ministry of Community Development, Youth and Sports, the Ministry was officially restructured on 1 November 2012.
