About Us

The People’s Association (PA) was established on 1 July 1960 as a statutory board to promote racial harmony and social cohesion in Singapore. Our 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 to people, and people and government. We do this through our network of over 2,000 grassroots organisations (GROs), over 100 Community Clubs, five Community Development Councils, National Community Leadership Institute and Water-Venture.

60 Years of Community Building

PA60 Logo 20202020 marks 60 years of community building with our people. We have walked this journey with fellow Singaporeans to build a harmonious, multi-racial and multi-cultural community.

The road ahead is not without challenges, but a strong and united community creates possibilities for Singapore to respond to these challenges, seize new opportunities and make things happen.

At the heart of this community are our grassroots leaders, volunteers, community partners and residents. Together, we re-imagine our common future, co-create opportunities and build a strong and united community for many more decades to come.

Our Motto

Bringing People Together

Our Logo

The People's Association's (PA) logoThe People's Association's (PA) logo is made up of one continuous element. This represents the PA's mission of connecting Singaporeans from all ethnic backgrounds to promote active citizenry and multiracial harmony.

Different communities, represented by the circles, keep their distinct identities and cultural values while moving and interacting with one another in the common space. Our vision is one of all communities bonding closely together, increasing the common space and strengthening the nation.

Red symbolises the passion and spirit of the different communities. It also signifies the growth and maturity of the people and the PA.

Our Flag
