2019-01-31

On 30th January, Mr Patrick Nip, Secretary for the Constitutional and Mainland Affair, was invited to visit the Tung Chung Integrated Services of the Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui Welfare Council. Apart from touring the center’s facilities and learning the centre’s services, Secretary Patrick Nip also sent out early Lunar New Year greetings to the elderly.

 

For the last two decades, the Tung Chung Integrated Services has been providing all round services to the teenagers and elderly in the community and supporting residents with employment problems. Now, the centre has extended services to Ying Tung Estate, where residents moved last year. In response of the changing needs and increased service demands of society, the Tung Chung Integrated Services has established a new site in third floor of Fu Tung Plaza (beside Tung Chung Nursery School) in addition to the original site in second floor. The new site of around 10,000-sq.ft. has commenced services earlier.

 

The theme of this new site is “i-Life”, where its design caters to intergenerational needs. The new site features an array of facilities, such as a training area for children with special educational needs, a well-equipped dancing room for the youth as well as an activity-cum-training room for the elderly with cognitive impairment to receive treatments and exercise. Moreover, it provides services to support those with special educational needs, elderly and women employment.

 

During the visit, a group of elderly demonstrated calligraphy and send out Lunar New Year greetings to everyone in the centre.

 

Secretary Patrick Nip then visited two families in Tung Chung to exchange views with the residents. Not only did he express care and warm regards to the residents, he also got a better picture of the daily lives and needs of the residents.
