Integrated Care & Counselling Framework (ICCF)

The ICCF was crafted two years ago to update our pastoral care approaches to make it more relevant and effective to deal with the issues and challenges of modern society. There are two branches to the ICCF, the Formative branch and the Interventive branch.

A task force Dns Siew Choo, Elder George Khoo, Alvin Goh, Mabeline Chia and Vivienne Yip was formed to look into setting the Formative branch. They have completed their research and partnering with two specialists crafted a curriculum to equip and train volunteers in requisite people-helping skills. These will be deployed as the first line people helper in the church community. Where they face issues and situations that go beyond their scope and abilities, they will escalate the matter to the Interventive branch.

A task force too was formed comprising Dns Deborah Liew, Dn Danny Chua and Dns Eeling to review our pastoral approaches, especially on legal matters. A number of papers concerning safety policies, standard operating procedures and statutory and governance checklists were also drawn up.
