New volunteering network launched to bring together HDB community programmes
A new community volunteering network has been set up to bring together existing HDB community-bonding programmes and volunteers into a single network.
Minister for National Development and Second Minister for Finance Lawrence Wong announced the launch of the new Friends of Our Heartlands network.
Existing programmes such as the Heartland Ambassador Programme, Project SPHERE, Good Neighbours Project, and Friendly Faces, Lively Places Fund will be consolidated under three new tracks under the new overarching network, according to a HDB press release.
The three new tracks - "Cultivate", "Activate" and "Facilitate" - will enable volunteers to choose how they wish to contribute to the community.
