Modular Social Housing Project is a social housing project launched by the Hong Kong Council of Social Service with the supported by the Government and the joint efforts of Transport and Housing Bureau, Development Bureau, The Community Care Fund, private companies, and NGOs/social enterprises. The project adopts modular integrated construction approach to building transitional social housing on idle land available for short-term usage in an efficient, economical and environmentally friendly way.
The objective of the Project is, through the provision of transitional accommodation and support services, to improve the quality of life for those who have been waiting for the public rental housing for at least 3 years while living in indecent housing units. While providing transitional social housing, the project recruits NGOs/social enterprises to manage and provide community network building and support services so as to improve residents’ social capital and develop their capacity for living independently in the community.
NGOs and social enterprises interested in providing innovative social housing services and/or in becoming our recognized service operator are welcome to submit a proposal. Particularly, the proposal is expected to suggest a way to organize residents to create a new service in response to the needs of residents and the surrounding community. During the operation period, the operator is also expected to work with the Council to evaluate the effectiveness and social impact, and to explore the long-term development of social housing service in Hong Kong. Please submit the proposal on or before 5pm on 26th November, 2021 (Fri) by mail or by hand to 13/F, Duke of Windsor Social Service Building, 15 Hennessy Road, Wanchai, Hong Kong. The proposal should be sealed with the title of the Project.
