Integrated Multi-faceted Services

To address the societal change, our Council is committed to providing one-stop integrated services, such as the opening of “Tung Chung Integrated Services Centre” in 2001, “Harmony Manor” in 2009 and “Fairyland” in 2013.

Expansion of Multi-faceted Services

Our Council expanded multi-faceted services to serve infants and toddlers, children, youth, the disabled, the elderly, families, etc. We pioneered a self-financed elderly outreaching service centre in 1992, and expanded our services to the Mainland in 1994.

1982 - 1991

Launch of Multi-faceted Services

Our Council continued to run NLCDPs with subsidies from the Social Welfare Department. In addition, responding to emerging needs of the society, our Council began multi-faceted services and launched elderly and children centres in 1982 and 1989, respectively.

1974 - 1981

Community Development

Our Council continued to operate self-financed “Neighbourhood Centres” in deprived communities. Since 1978, our Council received subsidies from the Social Welfare Department to launch numerous “Neighbourhood Level Community Development Projects” (NLCDPs), providing services in squatter areas, temporary housing, boat sheds and rural areas, and improving the living standards of residents. 

1968 - 1973

Consultation and Counselling 

The Neighbourhood Advice-Action Council (NAAC) was established in 1968 by a group of zealous people after a major social conflict in the city. Bridging the gap between the residents and the government,“Neighbourhood Centres” were set up in densely populated and deprived districts to provide consultation and counselling services to residents of all sectors.
