Parents Resource Centres (PRCs)

Parents Resource Centres (PRCs) serve to provide diversified and comprehensive services to families of people with developmental disorders, and ease parents’ pressure of taking care of their children. It is hoped that through mutual support and encouragement among parents, individual parent’s talents could be further developed.

To address the needs of service users who have stepped into adulthood, the Society established the territory’s first Jockey Club STAR Resource Centre in 2015 to cater for the needs of autistic individuals at different life stages, which signified a new milestone in the service development of the Society.
