Community Support Teams
The Home Affairs Department sponsors two community support teams, one for the Pakistani community and another for the Nepalese community.
ObjectivesThe main objectives for the establishment of these two teams are:
- to liaise with and understand the needs of members of the ethnic communities concerned, in order to provide appropriate services to individuals and families in their own language and in a culturally-sensitive manner;
- to provide assistance to these two ethnic communities by helping them to integrate more fully into the wider society; and
- to assist members of these two ethnic communities to gain access to social services and other community resources.
The primary task of the teams should be to serve members of the Pakistani and the Nepalese communities in Hong Kong.
