Family Support Service
The "Family Support" is a set of membership-based mutual-aid activities to give help for child-raising in the communities. Both of those who need assistance for child-raising (User Members) and those who wish to provide assistance for child-raising (Support Members) are required to apply for "registration."

Support Member (who wants to provide assistance for child-raising)
Physically and mentally healthy persons who are 18 years or older and live or go to school in Shinjuku City are eligible. Those who wish to register the Service are required to complete the course run by the Secretariat and to attend the briefing session. (Held three times a year.)
