Minister Desmond Lee will also be officiating the opening of SCC’s satellite centre (SCC@Hoy Fatt) at Block 50, Hoy Fatt Road. SCC@Hoy Fatt is set up to give residents residing in Lengkok Bahru easier access to family services. It shall complement the services by the main FSC at South Central Community Family Service Centre (SCC), Blk 5 Delta Avenue, #01-09, S (160005).
The satellite centre is a one-of-its-kind unique space that is both an extension of a home for our members in the community and an office for SCC. The once-void deck is now a multifunctional space. It is a community space for anyone to walk in to either: seek assistance from the FSC, surf the net for free, study quietly at a cozy corner, or simply have a cup of coffee for free. The shared community space even includes a comfortable children’s corner filled with toys and cushions for them to play and a children’s reading corner to promote a learning culture.
“The space is designed to look like a co-working, and co-living space for the community. The openness of the space — with the glass walls and all — should be a space that is welcoming and allows people from all walks of life to come in and make it their own. It redefines the idea of what a family services centre should look like and what it should do. We are not only about programmes and services, we are also about fostering a community bond in the area..”
