低收入劏房住戶生活空間調查

近年政府策劃在劏房較集中的社區設立社區客廳,香港社會服務聯會(社聯)透過問卷調查訪問了480個劏房住戶,了解他們對社區客廳的需求及期望,結果發現劏房住戶都需要透過這些共享生活空間改善期生活質素,然而社區客廳設施必須設於其居所15分鐘的步程以內,才能便利其生活所需,而不同種類住戶亦需要不類型的社區客廳。例如有兒童的住戶需要溫習的空間,而成人的住戶則需要淋浴或社區飯堂等設施。 社聯認為可以把劏房密集的社區進一步分為不同小區,透過研究了解不同小區的需要,以衛星站的形式設立與該小區特色相應的社區客廳。 調查詳情 ...

HKCSS Research Report – “Survey on Physical and Mental Wellbeing and Primary Healthcare Service Needs of Low-income Subdivided Unit Households”

The Hong Kong Council of Social Service (HKCSS) conducted a study last year, reaching out to low-income residents living in subdivided flats (with a median income below 75% of the Hong Kong population) through 54 social service units. A total of 1,105 valid questionnaires were collected to identify a range of health risk factors, including physical and mental wellbeing, environmental health and health behaviors, as well as access to medical service. Policy and service recommendations were made. The research findings were released in March 2023. The study was based on different data sources and the findings were analyzed based on a three-level primary healthcare prevention model. The report is divided into four chapters, presenting the wellbeing of these residents and the high-risk groups through graphics and text.  It also discusses how services and policies can support the needs of residents living in subdivided flats in the community.
