> Hong Kong Federation of Handicapped Youth
Hong Kong Federation of Handicapped Youth, established in 1970, is a government registered charitable organization managed by people with disabilities. Since aspects of education, employment and welfare facilities for the disabled were not paid with much attention at the time, tens of the people with physical disabilities joined together and formed HKFHY aiming to advocate for the best interest of the disabled. In 1978, the Federation established its Head Office and Activity Centre in Lam Tin Estate and reprovisioned the units to the existing premises in Wang Tau Hom Estate in 1992.
Being a self-help organization with the longest history in Hong Kongthat serves mainly the physically handicapped and chronic ill, aside from operating services that are subvented by the Social Welfare Department, the Federation continuously develops various innovative services and businesses that fit in the needs of the disabled. Currently, the Federation provides services including Jockey Club Activity Centre and Employment Service Centre; self-financed social enterprises including First Sense Design, Flower Workshop and Hong Kong Champion Bear; self-financed service HKFHY Momentum Academy. Through the aforesaid means, we aim to strengthen the confidence and social network of the disabled and enhance their job skills and employment opportunities, so that they can re-integrate into the society easily.
