The Meet The People Session (MPS)
The MPS serves as a conduit from which our MPs reach out to our residents who need help and advice. All issues ranging from job-matching, financial assistance, seeking for rental homes, appeals pertaining to fines to finding placement in a school for their child will be dealt with. The number of petitioners varies largely from one Friday to another; every session lasts as long as it takes to clear all petitions. It is advisable to arrive for registration as early as 7 pm. Please bring along your Identity card. It will also help to bring along document (letters, notices & etc.) which can help us to resolve your issues.
The MPS relies on a small group of volunteers to run the process smoothly. Their tasks include an initial interview with petitioners, drafting and typing petition letters, registration, correspondence archival and sending out letters. We welcome volunteers to join us in this meaningful work.
The free legal clinic is held on the last Friday of every month. Our legal lawyers render help to our residents who cannot afford legal advice and those who are not qualified for legal aid. The advice given by our lawyers includes employment, personal injury, contract and criminal matters. Not many places provide free legal advice, our residents are indeed fortunate to be served by these volunteer lawyers.
