Hong Kong Council of Social Service

The Hong Kong Council of Social Service is a federation of non-government social service agencies of Hong Kong. It was established in 1947 with the aim to plan and coordinate large scale relief works and social welfare after the Second World War. The Council has since become an essential partner of the Hong Kong Government in social welfare and development. Today it represents more than 400 Agency Members, providing over 90% of the social welfare service through their 3,000 operating units in Hong Kong.

It identifies critical social issues and recommends appropriate policies to the government for healthy social change. The Council also mobilizes cross-sector interactions to promote care, social responsibility and philanthropy culture in Hong Kong.

Its Vision: To build a social service sector that is highly accountable, efficient, effective and responsive to social needs, upholding the long-term sustainable development of society and the well-being of our citizens.
