About Trauma Network for Children (TNC)

The Trauma Network for Children (TNC) programme is a collaboration between KK Women's and Children's Hospital (KKH) and Temasek Foundation. It aims to enhance the capability of the Singapore community in providing psychosocial support to children, youth, and their families after crises or traumatic events. The TNC is committed to developing resources and creating learning opportunities for our community to be more trauma-informed. This network also provides a platform where trauma-trained professionals and individuals in the community come together regularly to connect, and share trauma and crisis related knowledge, practice and resources.

For the next three years, the Trauma Network for Children programme will focus on the following goals:

- To develop a community crisis response plan, that will enhance current psychosocial support for children and families experiencing varying types of crises and traumatic events in the community.

- To build up the capability of the Trauma Network for Children (TNC), through continued education opportunities for helping professionals, educators and lay individuals in trauma and crisis informed support and interventions.

- To deliver informational talks to parents, teachers, and school leaders of preschool children, with the aim of helping adults enhance the psychological resiliency of preschool children, through teaching adults to recognise signs of distress in preschool children, and how to provide a supportive response to buffer children from the impact of crisis or trauma. Efforts also include the development of resources that parents, and teachers can use with preschool children after crisis or trauma.
