Domestic helpers here will soon get to enjoy new dedicated facilities and a space to host gatherings when a clubhouse opens later this year.

The Foreign Domestic Worker Association for Social Support and Training (Fast) has signed the lease for a 3,000 sq ft area at Raeburn Park, near the defunct Tanjong Pagar Railway Station, where the clubhouse will be located, said its executive director, Mr William Chew, on Sunday.

For a start, a computer laboratory, library and lounge there will be launched in April, he added.

When fully open later in the year, the clubhouse will be a one-stop centre with counselling services, fitness activities and remittance services.
