Aiming at important social issues, through data collection, investigation and research, and grasping the observations of institutional members and the opinions of relevant persons, we advocate social policies and service development. At the same time, by establishing a practical non-governmental sector, promoting international and regional cooperation, advocating caring for society, corporate social responsibility and a culture of charity, we and our members can effectively promote excellent and innovative services and respond to the rapidly changing social needs.
In addition, we represent the industry to attend more than 60 government, statutory and civil society committees, covering social welfare, civil affairs, housing, environment, education, law, medical and health, security, anti-drug, information technology, urban renewal, etc. . The Social Council is also a special consultative capacity of the United Nations Economic and Social Committee.
The HKCSS provides a collaborative platform to promote the development of local rehabilitation work. In addition, the HKCSS also actively promotes the implementation of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities in Hong Kong to ensure that people with disabilities enjoy equal rights, freedom and dignity, including promoting employment and barrier-free environments for people with disabilities.
