Supportive Services for Hidden Youth

Supportive Services for Hidden Youth

Service Introduction

We are the first agency to concern the hidden youth phenomenon in Hong Kong. Since 2003, we have started a pilot counselling service. This service was supported by various funding in the past and was integrated into our mainstream integrated children and youth service since April 2016 in response to the prevailing “Hidden” phenomenon in the society.

Service Contents

Services are provided in both horizontal and vertical perspectives. Vertically, we would assess the motivation of the youth, arouse and enhance their psychological health, and help them reintegrate into the society. Horizontally, we would help the youth breakthrough their “Hidden” situation by rebuilding their social network and conne cting to the community.

  • Counselling Hotline: Registration and enquiry service are provided by social worker.

  • Home Visit: through activity based intervention, social workers provide regular home visit in order to build a trustful relationship with the youth and pave the way for reintegrating into the society.

  • Career and Life Planning: Social worker base on the motivation and interest of the youth to provide different activities including social skills training, outdoor activities, job placement, and self-understanding workshop and so on to assist the youth to formulate and search for their career and life goals.

  • Social Network Development: To build up the social network for the youth, different activities are provided in establishing regular contact with people.

  • Family Support: Regular parents group or activities such as parent-child communication skills training and understanding youth culture workshop are provided to create the networking among family members for enhancing mutual support.
