The People’s Association (PA) was established on 1 July 1960 as a statutory board to promote racial harmony and social cohesion in Singapore. Its mission is to build and bridge communities in achieving one people, one Singapore. PA offers a wide range of programmes to cater to Singaporeans from all walks of life, connecting people with people, and people with Government. We do this through our network of 1,800 grassroots organisations (GROs), over 100 Community Clubs, five Community Development Councils, National Community Leadership Institute and Water-Venture. Bolstered by volunteer involvement in the GROs, these volunteers help the PA achieve its mission of building and bridging communities to achieve one people, one Singapore. They bring people of different backgrounds together by organising a wide range of programmes for residents to meet and interact, encouraging community involvement, raising awareness about community issues, explaining Government policies and gathering feedback, as well as helping those in need, so as to strengthen racial harmony and social cohesion in our community.
