The Hong Kong Council of Social Service is a federation of non-government social service agencies of Hong Kong. The Council established in 1947 with the aim to plan and coordinate large scale relief works and social welfare after the Second World War. In 1951, the council became a statutory body under the ordinance, chapter 1057.
The Council has since become an essential partner of the Hong Kong Government in social welfare and development. Today we represent more than 460 Agency Members, providing quality social welfare service through their 3,000 operating units in Hong Kong.
The Council identifies critical social issues and recommend appropriate policies to the government for healthy social change. We also mobilize cross-sector interactions to promote care, social responsibility and philanthropy culture in Hong Kong.
The Council is committed to Hong Kong’s sustainable development and building an instrumental social service sector by providing vital capacity and other supports to our fellow members. They represent the sector in more than 60 committees of governments and statutory bodies dealing with varieties of social issues. The Council has a Special Consultative Status in the Economic and Social Commission of the United Nations.
