The Social Service Sector Strategic Thrusts (4ST)

Launched in 2017, the Social Service Sector Strategic Thrusts (4ST) is a five-year roadmap for the sector to ensure that it remains relevant and responsive to future challenges and changing needs of the population. It was co-developed by sector stakeholders with NCSS, and feedback and ideas were discussed amongst member organisations, service users, government, community leaders, business leaders and civic-minded individuals.

4ST aims to enable a person-centred and holistic approach towards advancing the Quality of Life for individuals.

“Every person empowered to live with dignity in a caring and inclusive society.”
