SINGAPORE - To keep up with the times, the Central Singapore Community Development Council (CDC) must look beyond its traditional role of helping the needy, Mayor Denise Phua said on Saturday at the appointment ceremony of the 8th Council.

And to help find out where their efforts are needed, the CDC will conduct needs analysis for various age and income groups.

Ms Phua said: "I think the landscape in which CDCs operate has changed. There are now many other players as well."

These include social service offices, family service centres and voluntary welfare organisations.
