Local Social Welfare Services


This course is designed to provide some basic information about social welfare and social services in Hong Kong to meet the needs of the non-social work major students. Students are required to study the provision of current social services funded by public monies. Further, they will examine the role played by professional social workers in helping society develop suitable social programs and services to satisfy the needs of the disadvantaged. In adopting an experiential learning approach, students are required to take some time out of their classroom to learn and complete a group paper under the guidance of the instructor.
