1. Melrose Home
Melrose Home forms part of Singapore's out-of-home care sector. It is a residential home for children and youths (6-21 years old) who are experiencing adverse family circumstances or child protection issues, such as physical, emotional, psychological and sexual abuse.
Out-of-home care is usually seen as a last-resort, temporary arrangement, until it is safe for the children and youths to return home to their families. As a result of the abuse they have experienced, residents struggle with trauma symptoms that have not been adequately addressed. We create a care environment that increases our residents' sense of safety, resilience and capacity to be empowered, independent and collaborative individuals.
2. Melrose Care
Melrose Care is a community-based agency offering subsidised counselling and specialised therapy such as art therapy, play therapy, trauma-focused cognitive behavioural therapy and more for children, youths and their families in the community.
