COVID19 Community Chronicles is a socialservice.sg podcast which documents community initiatives and discusses related structural or systemic challenges or issues. The podcast is hosted by Anchor and is also available on Apple Podcasts and Spotify. The full list of episodes are also available.
On June 15th, A Good Space – Singapore’s first community-owned co-operative – organised a discussion involving speakers from four non-profit organisations: AWARE, or the Association of Women for Action and Research; Beyond Social Services; ReadAble; and SG Assist. The discussion, which I had the privilege of moderating, was titled, “Beyond COVID19: The future of social services for low-income youths and families”.
In this episode, we summarised three segments, featuring the work of the organisations, how research and advocacy feature in their work, as well as the future of social policies and social services in Singapore. The full two-hour discussion is available here (https://www.facebook.com/AGoodSpaceSG/).
