Caring companies - counting our blessings
Today's world needs people who care. Through them a modern, caring society expresses its concerns. The Caring Company scheme, launched by the Hong Kong Council of Social Service in 2002, celebrates the success of the partnerships that make effective bridges between companies who care and the welfare sector. It acknowledges the links that connect us with corporate culture and pays tribute to action taken on behalf of the community.



In the past year, the Federation has joined hands with the business world to provide services that range from IT training and mentorships for the underprivileged to multisport challenges and exchange trips for schools, from volunteer services and outreach to youth employment expos and internships. We are delighted at how much these alliances have achieved. They spread branches of goodwill throughout Hong Kong, blossoming into mutually beneficial relationships where effort matched by equal effort can bear the fruit of corporate social responsibility.

Thank you to all our partner Caring Companies
