  • Lobby authorities to propose favourable legislation and to comment on proposed laws, actions or policies of authority affecting the interests of residents
  • Institute legal proceedings and other action on behalf of its members, and to defend residents’ legal interests (individually or collectively)
  • Co-operate with progressive organs of civil society (both locally and internationally) with similar aims and objectives
  • Conduct, co-ordinate and publish research on developments pertaining to socio-economic and political issues of public interest affecting members and residents
  • Form a Trust on behalf of its members, as the sole shareholder in SANCO investment projects
