The social services have been at the forefront of the pandemic in providing services to those who are disadvantaged. We acknowledge and affirm the courage of our social service professionals in persevering through this pandemic. With COVID restrictions easing, Kampung Siglap (KS) is seeking to now provide a space to retreat, reconnect and reignite the sector with a new programme. 


‘Tenang’ (calm, serene, undisturbed) is a programme designed for social service professionals to build resiliency and awareness of burnout during structured sessions, and also practice the very methods taught by professionals experienced in the field of caregiving and stress through experiential learning. 


With KS as the backdrop of the programme, guests get to be recharged through up to 3 self-explorative activities during their stay. 


This programme is open and fully funded for:

  1. Both client and non-client facing employees from NCSS member agencies and MSF-funded agencies; and

  2. Who have been in the social service sector for at least a year at the point of the programme.

*Endorsement is required from the organisation’s Executive Director/CEO during registration.

We invite you to take a well-deserved break.

About our Amenities



To enrich participants' experience, KS is partnering with CALM International and Caregivers Alliance, experts in the field of caregiving and stress, to conduct facilitated sessions for all participants. Participants will get the opportunity to deepen their knowledge about stress and burnout, and master self-care techniques that will in turn equip them to serve their clients better. Participants can also sign up for free life coaching sessions by Emerge Performance. At the end of the programme, we hope that participants will leave with a renewed hope and passion for the work that awaits them.

Frequently Asked Questions

1.   Who is eligible for 100% VCF Funding?

  • A current employee from NCSS member agencies and MSF-funded agencies who has been part of the social service sector for at least a year. You may visit https://tinyurl.com/NCSS-List-of-SSAs to check if your organisation is eligible.

2.   Is there a cap on the number of employees that my organisation can send?

  • Each run can take up to 50 individuals from various organisations. Each organisation can nominate up to 5 employees per run.

3.   When do I need to register by?

  • Registration for each run will close one month before the start of that run.

4.   Are meals halal?

  • Our K.S Cafe is halal certified so all meals provided will be halal.

5.   Can my organisation plan our own activities during the self-discovery sessions?

  • We encourage participants who come in groups from their organisations to take full advantage of not having to plan anything for this retreat and use the self-discovery time to rest, unwind, and try out the activities that we have prepared for you. If you have special requests for activities, indicate it within the registration form and we’ll get back to you!

6.   Is it mandatory for participants to participate in the full 3-day programme?

  • Yes, as a shorter duration would compromise on the quality of rest that participants can enjoy. We hope that participants can detach themselves entirely from work during the 3D2N to allow themselves to benefit more from the programme.

7.   Is it mandatory for participants to stay overnight?

  • We recommend that participants fully immerse themselves in the programme, which includes the overnight stay. However, if you are a parent/caregiver who would like to be part of this programme, please write in to ks@newhopecs.org.sg.
