REACH (reaching everyone for active citizenry@ home) was launched in October 2006 when the Feedback Unit was restructured to move beyond gathering public feedback, to become the lead agency for engaging and connecting with citizens. REACH was also appointed as the Singapore Government’s e-engagement platform in January 2009.
The three key roles of REACH are to:-
Gather and Gauge Ground Sentiments
We continue to feel the pulse of the ground and keep the government apprised of key issues of concern amongst Singaporeans.
Reach Out and Engage Citizens
We work closely with community and grassroots organisations to reach out to more heartlanders, as well as voluntary welfare groups, professional groups and groups with specific needs and interests.
We have a wide variety of traditional and new media channels for citizens who are interested to engage the government, such as public forums, dialogue sessions, SMS, telephone, email, Facebook and Twitter.
Promote Active Citizenry through Citizen Participation and Involvement
We will facilitate the formation of workgroups to develop ideas into concrete proposals for the Government’s consideration.
Moving ahead, REACH will continue to encourage and promote public participation in shaping government policies.
