Project Detail

The project aims at training, developing and providing peers as "Navigators" to carers in meeting different needs along their caring journey.  They will help to signposting available services and community resources to users in need and befriending with them.  The project will also target elderly and disabled persons whose families have or will migrate overseas.  The Navigators, with the support of other stakeholders in the community, will provide continuous care, regular contacts and support to this specific group of clients.  The ultimate goal is to develop a salient social support network around clients in reducing the impact of social isolation and loneliness.

Project Remark
The project is supported by HSBC 150th Anniversary Charity Programme through a donation to The Community Chest of Hong Kong
