Rina Harun: Three one-stop social support centres to open early next year

PASIR MAS (Bernama): A total of three One-Stop Social Support Centres (PSSS) are scheduled to start operating in the first quarter of 2022.

Women, Family and Community Development Minister Datuk Seri Rina Mohd Harun (pic) said the establishment of the centres in Kelantan, Selangor and Johor involve an allocation of RM21 million for the maintenance costs of existing buildings owned by government agencies.

She said the allocation would also involve the setting up of PSSS Mobile (mobile support centre) in the North, South, Central, East, Sarawak, Sabah and Putrajaya Zones which would focus on densely populated areas such as the People's Housing Project (PPR) and expected to start operating next month.

"The PSSS is one of the Ministry's initiatives to address domestic violence issues and issues related to social problems," said Rina.

She added that the PSSS will also provide temporary shelter as well as intervention and protection for domestic violence victims and long-term welfare assistance for the long term.

Speaking after visiting the Kampung Kastam quarters in Rantau Panjang near here on Sunday (Sept 26), Rina said this place will be the location of the first PSSS in the country.

"We are still looking for suitable locations in Selangor and Johor,” she said. - Bernama
