Heep Hong Society

Social Work Service for Pre-Primary Institutions

In order to early identify and support preschool children and families in need, the Social Welfare Department officially launched the three-year "Pilot Scheme on Social Work Service for Pre-primary Institutions" in the 2018-2019 school year. Heep Hong Society has joined the scheme since February 2019, providing professional social work services to 32 pre-primary institutions to support the children, their parents/caregivers and the teaching staff. 

By 2023, the Social Welfare Department started to implement the district-based "Social Work Service for Pre-primary Institutions" in four service districts and we began to serve the pre-primary Institutions in Sham Shui Po 3 District on 1st August 2023.
