SINGAPORE - Since March 2019, more than 200 people have been trained to provide basic marriage support to couples, as part of government efforts to strengthen marriages.
Minister of State for Social and Family Development Sun Xueling on Tuesday (Jan 5) said 215 community leaders, religious leaders and marriage solemnisers had been trained as Marital First Responders who can step in early before matters take a turn for the worse.
More such responders will continue to be trained, she said, adding that the Government will continue to work with social service agencies and community organisations to offer more marriage enrichment programmes for couples to strengthen their relationships.
