Community Service Partnership Scheme

Community Service Partnership Scheme

The URA has launched a community service partnership scheme as a platform for collaboration with universities and NGOs to serve the underprivileged groups in the old districts through volunteer services, while at the same time promote service learning of the young people.

We have been helping to improve the living environment of the old districts through our core businesses in redevelopment and building rehabilitation. Our staff is dedicated to work for the well-being of the residents in these dilapidated areas, and hope to contribute more to the community through this scheme. Programmes of 2017-2018 are:

  • Caring programme for ethnic minority children
  • Experiential learning programme for underprivileged children
  • Upcycling programme for disadvantaged families
  • Visiting the elderly for health promotion

About the video
In 2012, the URA has launched a Community Service Partnership Scheme as a platform for collaboration with universities and NGOs to serve the underprivileged groups in the old districts through volunteer services, while at the same time promote service learning of the young people. The Scheme has partnered with 9 universities and NGOs and formed a team with about 1,000 volunteers. The team had served the community for more than 6,400 hours through activities like assisting primary school students from underprivileged families with their study, visiting the homeless and elderly people in old districts.
