District Services and Community Care Teams in 16 districts open for applications
     ​Further to the selection for the District Services and Community Care Teams in Tsuen Wan and Southern Districts earlier, Care Teams in the remaining 16 districts open for applications today (March 13).

     As announced in the 2022 Policy Address, Care Teams will be set up in 18 districts to support the Government's district work and strengthen community network.

     The Government will delineate each district into different sub-districts, and set up a Care Team in each sub-district. The number of sub-districts in each of the 16 districts is in Annex 1. Organisations will form Care Teams through a selection process. 

     The selection process of Care Teams consists of two stages: (1) organisation selection stage and (2) service proposal assessment stage. In the first stage, the experience in providing services/organising activities, district network, mobilisation capability, etc, of the applicant organisations will be assessed. In the second stage, organisations that have passed the first stage will submit service proposals based on the key performance indicators (KPIs) set by District Offices for individual sub-districts. Organisations that have passed the two-stage selection process will become Care Teams of the sub-districts concerned.

     The two-stage selection process will be undertaken by the Territory-wide Assessment and Steering Group on Care Teams chaired by the Secretary for Home and Youth Affairs, and District Assessment and Coordinating Panels on Care Teams chaired by District Officers to ensure its transparency and fairness. 

     Guidance on application and the assessment criteria are set out in the application guide (www.had.gov.hk/en/public_services/district_services_community_care_teams/selection.htm). Interested organisations should submit the completed application forms and the documents required for the first stage of selection to the District Office concerned on or before March 31. The contact information of the 16 District Offices is in Annex 2.

     The selection of Care Teams in Tsuen Wan and Southern Districts has commenced earlier and relevant work is under way.
