Service

The CARE College aims at providing trainings on seamless support services, to carers, caregiving professionals and workers, and the related agencies in Hong Kong. Our programs are designed with the needs of carers in mind, striving to provide these parties with relevant information and resources. We also involve our community in the process ­­- raising public awareness to the wide spectrum of needs of different carers across different age groups.


Project aim

Co-created by the Integrated Elderly Services and Integrated Mental Health Services, we adopt an academy model to support carers and carer services with useful information and tools.
