谢谢,主席先生。我想就马善高部长所提到的ComLink+的议题提问:由于提升版社区联系站计划的家庭导师都是社区的的工作人员,相信部长也知道他们的工作量已经很饱和了。
 
那么,我想问一下,社会及家庭发展部是否会真的能够为社区联系站的家庭导师提供额外的资源和资金,以便他们能得到足够的支持?

现在住在出租屋的有孩子的家庭中,有一部分已经加入了家庭服务中心。因此,他们与社区联系站的家庭指导员已经建立了关系,这对他们来说不算他们的额外工作,而是为了让他们更好地开展工作。

 
我们还为社区联系站的家庭导师们提供过了很多的工具,以激励他们实现社区联系站的最终目标,而不只是解决离婚或家庭暴力等问题。
因此,我不认为这会加重他们的负担,事实上他们会更乐意接受,因为现在他们有更多的工具来帮助他们实现社区联系站建立初衷所希望这这些家庭实现的目标。

请问孙雪玲部长,今年下半年的婴儿保姆试验计划,现有的个体保育员是否可以加入该计划,还是他们必须受雇于保育员经营者?

孙雪玲

内政部兼社会及家庭发展部政务部长

新加坡社会及家庭发展部各要员集体回复:全力扶持家庭服务中心计划
我们目前正在与经营者接触。根据目前的接触情况,我们是希望让经营者与个体保育员接触,并对个体保育员负责,因为由 MSF (社会及家庭发展部)对每个保育员进行监管是非常困难的。因此,对你的问题的回答:是的。

我想向马善高部长提出有关家庭服务中心FSCs)的资助模式问题。
 
首先,我想肯定的是,我认为提升版社区联系站计划(Comlink+)的资助模式是非常先进的,因为它是以成果为基础的奖励模式。
 
但我想问的是,社会及家庭发展部是否会考虑对现行的家庭服务中心的资助模式进行审查,以过渡到以成果为基础的奖励模式;而不是现行的基于工作量的资助模式?
 

马善高  

社会及家庭发展部长兼卫生部第二部长主管回教事务部长

新加坡社会及家庭发展部各要员集体回复:全力扶持家庭服务中心计划
正如我在发言中提到的那样,我们社会及家庭发展部高级政务次长蔡瑞隆正在领导一个专责小组,对家庭服务中心整体情况进行全面审查。当然,我们议员刚刚提到的领域也将是在审查范围内。

主席:有其他要补充的嘛?高级政务次长蔡瑞隆?

蔡瑞隆

文化、社区及青年部兼社会及家庭发展部高级政务次长

新加坡社会及家庭发展部各要员集体回复:全力扶持家庭服务中心计划
我只想对我刚才的发言做一个纠正,我之前说过家庭导师会走访家庭,每个月一到两次。实际上,是一到两个月一次。

主席:是否有其他社会及家庭发展部成员想要补充的嘛?如果没有,请杨益财议员作修正议案。

杨益财  

拉丁马士区国会议员

新加坡社会及家庭发展部各要员集体回复:全力扶持家庭服务中心计划
谢谢议员,我想感谢马善高部长、孙雪玲部长、蔡瑞隆高级政务次长以及在幕后努力工作的社区联系站的家庭导师,感谢你们处理了议员们提出的各种问题。
社会和家庭问题非常复杂。表面上的问题往往是层层叠加的结果。我们理解,永远不可能有一剂灵丹妙药可以解决困难家庭所面临的重重问题;但我感到欣慰的是,社区联系站的家庭导师和社会服务部门正在尽最大努力支持和帮助弱势的新加坡人,并促进一个充满关爱的社会。他们的工作往往不为人知,但却至关重要,值得赞扬。

以下是英文质询内容:

The Chairman: Mr Faisal Manap.

Mr Muhamad Faisal Bin Abdul Manap: Thank you, Sir. I have one clarification for Minister Masagos.

I believe Minister Masagos mentioned earlier that the ComLink+ family coaches are actually social workers from the FSCs and I believe the Minister is aware of the already heavy workload of FSCs’ social workers. So, I would like to ask whether MSF will actually be able to provide additional resources and funding to FSCs, so that FSCs are sufficiently equipped?

Mr Masagos Zulkifli B M M: The families who live in rental homes who have children, part of them are already under the FSC. So, they have a relationship with the FSC social worker and this is not an additional job for them. It is to let them do their work even better because we give them more tools to incentivise their families to achieve their lifelong goals, in addition to resolving issues like divorce or family violence and so forth. So, I do not see this as an additional burden to them but actually they would very much welcome that now they have more tools to enable them to achieve the objectives that they want for these families.

The Chairman: Mr Giam.

Mr Gerald Giam Yean Song: Just clarify with Minister of State Sun, can existing individual childminders join the programme or do they have to be employed by a childminding operator?

Ms Sun Xueling: We are currently engaging the operators. Based on the engagement so far, the intent is for the operators to engage the childminders and be responsible for the childminders because it would be very difficult for the MSF to be regulating each and every childminder. So the short answer to your question is, yes.

The Chairman: Ms Carrie Tan.

Ms Carrie Tan: I would like to address this query to Minister Masagos regarding the funding model of FSCs.

Firstly, I would like to commend that I think the funding model for Comlink+ is very progressive in that it rewards and has an outcome-based model. But I would like to ask if the Ministry would consider reviewing the current funding model of FSCs to transition towards an outcomes-based funding for those FSCs that work on social mobility outcomes, rather than the current model which is based on the caseload funding?

Mr Masagos Zulkifli B M M: As I had mentioned in my speech, Senior Parliamentary Secretary Eric Chua is now leading a task force to conduct an overall review of the FSC landscape and certainly, the areas our Member mentioned just now will be one of them that he will be looking at.

The Chairman: Any other clarifications? Yes, Senior Parliamentary Secretary Eric Chua.

Mr Eric Chua: I just want to make a clarification to my main speech earlier. In my excitement, I have said that the family coaches would visit the families at the beginning, once or twice every month. Actually, it is once, every one to two months.

The Chairman: Any other clarifications from any Member? If not, can I invite Mr Melvin Yong, if you like, to withdraw your amendment?

Mr Melvin Yong Yik Chye: Thank you, Chairman. I would like to thank Minister Msagos Zulkifli, Minister of State Sun Xueling, Senior Parliamentary Secretary Eric Chua and the MSF team working very hard behind the scenes now, for addressing the wide range of issues that Members have raised.

Social and family issues are deeply complex. What manifests on the surface is often the result of layers upon layers of varied issues. We have learned that there can never be a silver bullet that would resolve the overlapping problems that distress family faces, but I am heartened that MSF and the social service sector are doing their best to support and to help vulnerable Singaporeans and foster a caring society. Their work is often unseen but crucial and commendable. Chairman, with that, I beg leave to withdraw my amendment.

Amendment, by leave, withdrawn.

The sum of $4,565,896,900 for Head I ordered to stand part of the Main Estimates.

The sum of $124,079,000 for Head I ordered to stand part of the Development Estimates.

The Chairman: Order. I propose to take a break now.

Thereupon Mr Speaker left the Chair of the Committee and took the Chair of the House. 

Mr Speaker: Order. I propose to take a break now. I suspend the Sitting and will take the Chair at 4.40 pm.
