Child Care Services
90. I have visited a Neighbourhood Support Child Care Project run by a local women's association in Tin Shui Wai to see for myself its operation. I am glad to learn that the project has achieved the objectives of both fostering mutual help in the neighbourhood and providing flexible child care services. The Government has therefore decided to extend the coverage of the project from the current 11 districts to all 18 to benefit more families in need.
91. Currently, the Comprehensive Child Development Service enables the early identification of pregnant women, mothers and children in need, and their referral to suitable health or welfare service units for follow-up and support services. We plan to extend the service to all 18 districts.
