About Us

Social housing is led by non-governmental organizations, with the joint efforts of different funders, private companies, and NGOs/social enterprises, supported by the Government. Social housing aims to provide affordable housing to tenants who wait for public rental housing for at least 3 years and live in indecent rental subdivided units. The pre-qualified operators will provide community-based social services and work with residents to develop their network and capacity for living independently in the community after the service. The Hong Kong Council of Social Service (HKCSS) plays a role of the Social Housing Intermediary Platform in coordinating and planning transitional social housing project, selecting service operators for housing projects and, with them, promoting and developing social housing together. Currently two housing schemes, that is, “Community Housing Movement” and “Modular Social Housing”, have been carried out by the Council since 2017.
