The Social Factor was honoured to speak at a panel on “Raising Parents to be Effective Advocates for their Children” as part of the Parents for Parents community initiative launched by the Lien Foundation. The campaign aims to impart practical skills for parents, nurture self advocacy and build community resilience. It is held in conjunction with PEEKABOO! I SEE YOU, an inclusive arts festival by Superhero Me in partnership with the Rainbow Centre. Mark and Sue Lim from The Social Factor were featured in an article by The Straits Times in relation to the event.
The Social Factor is the appointed vendor for the Colours of the Mind programme, organised by the Health Promotion Board. The programme equips parents of children 2-6 years old with the relevant knowledge and skills to help their children to have positive mental wellbeing. Dr Sophian Kayat, one of the trainers from The Social Factor, was recently featured in the April-June 2016 issue of Beanstalk, an online publication of the Early Childhood and Development Agency. The Social Factor is pleased to be working with the Health Promotion Board on this important programme.
