Terms and Conditions for Participation in REACH Events (“Terms of Participation”)

REACH is the Government's Feedback Unit. We aim to gather and gauge ground sentiments, engage citizens and promote active citizenry. Our face-to-face engagement platforms, including events, dialogues, public forums and focus group discussions, provide channels for you to share your feedback with the Government. Feedback received will recorded (whether through the use of audio/sound recordings, or in writing) by REACH, and surfaced to relevant agencies. We also facilitate communication between citizens and agencies by proactively initiating discussion on various topics.

In exchange for your participation in REACH’s events, you agree to be bound and abide by these Terms of Participation. Your participation in any engagement platform or event organised by REACH (each an “Event”) constitutes your acceptance of these Terms of Participation.

REACH (representing the Government of the Republic of Singapore) may add to, delete or modify any or all of the terms and conditions in the Terms of Participation at any time without notice to you. The most current version of the Terms of Participation can be found at: Terms of Participation for REACH Events.
