Urban Renewal Social Service Team
It is a matter of great importance that the residents affected by redevelopment are given all possible assistance to minimise any disruption to their livelihood. To facilitate this, the URA has set up urban renewal social service teams since its establishment in 2001 to provide assistance and counseling services to residents affected by its redevelopment projects. Social Service Teams have been established in Central and Western District, Kowloon City, Kwun Tong, Sham Shui Po and Yau Tsim Mong.
Under the URS promulgated in February 2011, the social service teams are funded by the Urban Renewal Fund which is set up with endowment from the URA. The social service teams report directly to the Board of the Urban Renewal Fund.
