Working together key in the social services sector
Minister for Social and Family Development, Chan Chun Sing, says that everyone in the social services sector has to work together to target the needs of the people in an integrated manner.
At a Social Service Partners Conference this morning, Mr Chan said the sector should aim to "Do More, Do Better, and Do Together".
And the government needs to do just that, to cater for some 900,000 senior citizens by 2030 who will require eldercare services.
Mr Chan also says his ministry can do better, by improving the competencies of professionals in the social services sector, and giving them more leadership training opportunities.
