Flutter: How to make my dialog box scrollable?

Issue

I’m just new in flutter and now I have a problem in my dialog box. The problem is that my dialog box is becoming overflowed because of texts. So, now I want to make it scrollable so that texts still can be viewed. I already put a “SingleChildScrollView” on it but still doesn’t work Please help.

My code:

_viewingRequest(dynamic data) async {
return showDialog(
    barrierDismissible: false,
    context: _scaffoldKey.currentContext,
    builder: (context) {
      return SingleChildScrollView(
        child: AlertDialog(
          contentPadding: EdgeInsets.only(left: 25, right: 25),
          title: Center(child: Text("Information")),
          shape: RoundedRectangleBorder(
              borderRadius: BorderRadius.all(Radius.circular(20.0))),
          content: Container(
            height: 200,
            width: 300,
            child: Column(
              crossAxisAlignment: CrossAxisAlignment.stretch,
              children: <Widget>[
                SizedBox(
                  height: 20,
                ),
                Text(
                    'Name of requestor: ${data['Name_ofUser']}'
                ),
                Text(
                  'Description:',
                ),
                Text(
                  '${data['Help_Description']}',
                ),
                Text(
                  'Type of help needed: ${data['Help_TypeNeeded']}',
                )
              ],
            ),
          ),
          actions: <Widget>[
            Row(

                    color: Color(0xFF121A21),
                    shape: new RoundedRectangleBorder(

                Padding(
                  padding: const EdgeInsets.only(right: 70.0),

Solution

Change position of SingleChildScrollView to on top of Column works fine

return AlertDialog(
            contentPadding: EdgeInsets.only(left: 25, right: 25),
            title: Center(child: Text("Information")),
            shape: RoundedRectangleBorder(
                borderRadius: BorderRadius.all(Radius.circular(20.0))),
            content: Container(
              height: 200,
              width: 300,
              child: SingleChildScrollView(
                child: Column(
                  crossAxisAlignment: CrossAxisAlignment.stretch,
                  children: <Widget>[
                    SizedBox(
                      height: 20,
                    ),
                    Text(
                        'Name of requestor: }'
                    ),
                    Text(
                      'Description:' * 20,
                    ),
                    Text(
                      'Help_Description',
                    ),
                    Text(
                      'Type of help needed:Help_TypeNeeded',
                    )
                  ],
                ),
              ),
