Understanding the Underserved Needs of Youth-At-Risk in Singapore: A Self-Determination Approach

In Reports, Resources by Sam

Commissioned by Caritas Singapore, this study identifies gaps in services for youth-at-risk from the perspective of social service professionals and youth-at-risk. Results showed a mismatch between social service provision and client expectations, and highlighted the importance of considering the psychological need for autonomy and relatedness in bridging the gaps.

With regards to Beyond-specific data, the youth participants of Beyond Social Services reported more positive experiences of psychological needs (autonomy, competence and relatedness) and physical needs in their lives, as well as through the programmes at Beyond.
