Hong Kong Federation of Handicapped Youth, established in 1970, is a government registered charitable organization managed by people with disabilities. Since aspects of education, employment and welfare facilities for the disabled were not paid with much attention at the time, tens of the people with physical disabilities joined together and formed HKFHY aiming to advocate for the best interest of the disabled.
Being a self-help organization with the longest history in Hong Kong that serves mainly the physically handicapped and chronic ill, aside from operating services that are subvented by the Social Welfare Department, the Federation continuously develops various innovative services and businesses that fit in the needs of the disabled. Currently, the Federation provides services include Jockey Club Activity Centre, Employment Service Centre, Momentum Academy and Stanley Bradbury Bath Shed (a fully accessible beach house for the disabled); self-financed social enterprises including First Sense Design and Flower Workshop. Through the aforesaid means, we aim to strengthen the confidence and social network of the disabled and enhance their job skills and employment opportunities, so that they can re-integrate into the society easily.
