What We Do

What We do Service to Women

We have run for more than 20 years the Star Shelter, the only secular shelter for women in Singapore. It is a safe space for women and children who are survivors of family violence.

Apart from providing them with accommodation, clothing, and food, we also cater to their emotional needs with therapy and educational programmes. We have helped more than 2,000 women and children rebuild their lives, and we are looking to expand our services

Maintenance Support Central provides support and legal assistance to women who have difficulties getting spousal and/or child maintenance payments. Each year we help some 800 clients claim the funds they are entitled to. 

Our Legal Clinics provide free legal advice to more than 100 women a year who grapple with family law issues such as divorce, custody, and the need for personal protection order to protect them and their children from violence. 

Women Leadership Programmes

 Women’s Register connects women aged 18 to 25 to female industry leaders from a wide range of sectors for guidance and inspiration. We aim to help the young women develop confidence and build their social and professional networks.  

BoardAgender focuses on increasing the awareness of the importance of having gender-balanced boards and businesses in Singapore. Our signature mentorship programme is building a pipeline of board-ready women directors. 

Education and Empowerment

The Singapore Women’s Hall of Fame honours and celebrates the outstanding women who have made an impact on our nation. We document and share their stories widely so as to inspire others, especially young Singaporeans, to dare to dream and to chart their own paths in life. 

PAWesome

Project Awesome brings the inspiring stories of the awesome women in the Singapore Women’s Hall of Fame to school children with lesson plans, interactive workshops, and talks and exhibitions.  These teaching resources are made available to all schools, madrasahs, and childrens’ homes.
