Community Development Councils

About CDC

The Community Development Councils (CDCs) were formed in 1997 to strengthen community bonds and foster social cohesion through its “ABC” mission, i.e. Assisting the Needy, Bonding the People and Connecting the Community.  Guided by its mission, the CDCs develop and implement programmes that identify emerging needs in the community and address community needs such as caring for vulnerable, silver community, environment, and community health to build a caring and cohesive community.
