Citizens' Consultative Committees

The Citizens' Consultative Committees (CCCs) are at the apex of all grassroots organisations. A vital bridge between the people and the Government, the CCCs plan and lead major grassroots activities within the constituency, oversee local assistance programmes, and organise major fund-raising projects and national campaigns.

Programmes

The CCCs organise various programmes to support PA's mission.

Outreach Programmes

 

These programmes are designed to:

  • Build strong community ties with events such as festival celebrations;
  • Encourage residents to get to know and understand one another; and
  • Support the Government and various agencies in nationwide campaigns such as dengue prevention, Clean & Green Week, Racial Harmony Month and Good Neighbour Day.

Assistance Programmes

 

CCCs help implement/ administer assistance schemes for the needy and economically underprivileged in our community. These schemes include:

  • CCCs ComCare Fund for urgent, temporary relief in hardship cases;
  • Edusave Awards;
  • Pre-School Outreach programmes; and
  • Distribution of adhoc meal/ transport vouchers.

Bridging Programmes

 

CCCs facilitate interaction between the people and the Government by explaining government policies and gathering feedback from residents. These bridging programmes include:

  • Community forums involving residents; and
  • Dialogue sessions with representatives from the Government agencies.

To find out more about the various programmes and initiatives of the CCCs for your constituency, please locate your nearest Community Club.
