Hong Kong care facility for disabled people to open this month, as government pledges to increase subsidised service spots


Hong Kong welfare authorities have pledged to raise the number of subsidised service places for people with disabilities over the next five years to shorten the waiting time and provide better support.

The push will be helped by the opening of the Siu Lam Integrated Rehabilitation Services Complex this month in Tuen Mun, which will be the largest of its kind in the city for disabled people.


It will provide residential care for those who are severely disabled physically and mentally, the moderately mentally disabled and people recovering from mental illnesses. The site also offers day training and vocational rehabilitation services.


The facility has seven units offering 1,710 service places – 1,150 for residential care and 560 for day training and vocational rehabilitation.


“Its main purpose is to provide services for people with disabilities so we can really meet the needs of the community,” said deputy director of social welfare Alex Wong Kwok-chun during a media briefing on Thursday.


“The new facility will help shorten the waiting time for these services.”
