Caring Company Scheme
To build a cohesive society by promoting strategic partnerships among business and social service partners, and inspiring corporate social responsibility through caring for the community, employees and the environment.
To ride out the storm with grassroots community and support households which face challenges meeting their rental payments during the Coronavirus outbreak, Standard Chartered Bank (Hong Kong) Limited will donate HKD10 million to the Hong Kong Council of Social Service (HKCSS) for families living in subdivided units.
A total of 2,000 eligible households will each receive a one-off subsidy of HKD5,000, about the monthly median rent for a subdivided unit in Hong Kong. The subsidy payment will be made in about a week after the close of the application period via Faster Payment System to ensure that households are able to receive funds in an easy and timely manner to address their pressing needs.
