About Us

CDAC was set up on 22 May 1992 by the Singapore Federation of Chinese Clan Associations (SFCCA) and Singapore Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SCCCI) as a self-help group for the Chinese community.

CDAC offers programmes and assistance schemes to help the less privileged in the community to maximise their potential and strive for social mobility through self-help and mutual support.

In 2021, CDAC supported more than 17,700 households through its various programmes for students, workers, seniors and families.

We support 9,000 low-income families annually with holistic assistance to help them work towards self-reliance. We organise parents development programme and family bonding activities to help parents become better stewards of their households and strengthen family bonding.


We provide integrated support to workers in employment and training by working closely with various government agencies.

Besides employment, we also provide holistic support to workers by offering education programmes and assistance to their children, parenting programmes to them and their spouses, and financial assistance to their families.


We help seniors to stay active and lead meaningful lives through learning and volunteering through programmes such as information sharing sessions (on topics such as Lasting Power of Attorney, MediShield Life and CPF Life), weekly news sharing programme, IT courses and volunteering programmes.
