We want to hear from you!
COVID-19 has challenged couples and families in many ways, affecting our plans to get married, start or grow our families. The Government wants to understand how COVID-19 may have affected your marriage and parenthood journey so that we can build a Singapore that is Made For Families.
Ms Indranee Rajah, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Office, and Ms Sun Xueling, Minister of State for Social and Family Development, and Education, will be leading a series of conversations from April to September 2021 with individuals to better understand their experiences and thoughts on getting married and raising families. The conversations will also explore what new challenges or opportunities have arisen as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, and how this has affected their aspirations and priorities.
The sessions are part of the Singapore Together Emerging Stronger Conversations. They will be jointly organised by the National Population and Talent Division in the Strategy Group, Prime Minister’s Office, the Ministry of Social and Family Development, and the Ministry of Culture, Community, and Youth.
Here’s how you can join the Conversation:
The conversations will be held online between April and September 2021. For a start, six online sessions will be organised for participants in the following life-stages:
i. those who are dating/ engaged/ married without children;
ii. parents with children aged up to 6 years old; and
iii. parents with children in primary school
There will also be an online session for those who would like to share their views on issues related to fertility, such as awareness, screening and treatment.
If you are interested in joining any of these sessions, please sign up by clicking on the green button below. All Singaporeans, their partners, and parents of a Singaporean child are welcome to register.
Together, we can build a Singapore that is Made For Families!

Participants will be invited to share their personal views and experiences on the topic with other participants, and with political office holders at the session. We would like participants to be respectful of one another and the different views each may have, so that the conversations can be made in an open and safe space. To make the session meaningful for fellow attendees, we would like to request that participants attend the full 2-hour session once their attendance is confirmed.

Organisers will shortlist participants to ensure a diverse representation across the different life stages and demographic profiles.
We want to ensure that each participant is meaningfully engaged, and has sufficient opportunity to share their views and perspectives. We therefore seek your understanding that only one person per couple/family would be allowed to register. This will also allow for more couples/families to participate.
Thank you for your interest! We regret that each individual can participate in one session only. This will also allow for more couples/families to participate.
This series of conversations has a specific focus on getting married, and raising children. If there is no session available for you to sign up for, you may still share your feedback here.
