Legal and psychological support for the most vulnerable refugees in Hong Kong.
Refugees from around the world and survivors of human trafficking.
Formerly Hong Kong Refugee Advice Centre, Justice Centre was the first and only NGO in Hong Kong to provide free and vital legal aid to vulnerable refugees fleeing from conflict and human rights abuses around the world.
What They Do
Justice Centre Hong Kong provides free and independent legal information to all people seeking protection in Hong Kong, as well as one-to-one specialised legal and psychological support to the most vulnerable refugees.
Justice Centre Hong Kong also advocates with and for refugees, other people seeking protection and survivors of modern slavery, bringing their voices into the public debate.
86% of the world’s refugees are hosted in developing countries. Hong Kong has one of the smallest global refugee populations; there are around 10,000 people seeking protection here from countries like Somalia, Pakistan, Egypt, Central African Republic and Rwanda.
Justice Centre Hong Kong is a not-for-profit, human rights organization working fearlessly to protect the rights of Hong Kong’s most vulnerable forced migrants - refugees, other people seeking protection and survivors of modern slavery.
Launched in 2014, Justice Centre Hong Kong was formerly Hong Kong Refugee Advice Centre, which over seven years helped over 2,000 refugee men, women and children on the road to a new life.
At the charity’s welcoming and comfortable centre, people seeking protection in Hong Kong receive free and independent legal information and assistance. The most vulnerable protection claimants can also receive one-to-one specialised legal and psychological support. In terms of advocacy, Justice Centre Hong Kong campaigns for adequate legislation and policies, conducts research and works with schools, universities and the media to fight root causes and change systems and minds.
