Project Spooner Road Located at Spooner Road are two rental blocks that house approximately 240 families. A community profile assessment done by the Social Service Office @ Kreta Ayer surfaced large numbers of families with high needs who required social service assistance. The children and youths residing at Spooner Road are also assessed to be at risk of delinquency and dropping out of school due to the negative influences and vices that they are exposed to in the neighbourhood.

Project Spooner Road aims to provide social assistance and social work interventions to benefit the residents, including children and youth. Programs will provide children and youth members with various activities and programmes to gain useful life skills in order to face life challenges.
