Advocacy and advice service 倡議及諮詢服務

Our advice service targets the Chinese community focusing on older people on low income, the unemployed, and people on benefits and housebound. Last year, we provided advice on 1309 enquiries by helping to interpret and translate issues around benefits, finance, housing, and health.
Advice sessions can be provided face-to-face or over the phone. Sessions can be pre-booked to see our adviser.
