ALFA is a ground up initiative and its members hope that when ALFs are set up within the suggested guidelines, the public will be assured of the set standard of facilities and services. This will give users of ALF services in Singapore peace of mind. In addition, to ensure that such standards are adhered to in the long term, operators of ALFs will be encouraged to sign up for regular audits and checks conducted by ALFA. Such ALFA-accredited ALFs would have achieved a standard which most users will find acceptable.
