Opportunities for the Elderly Project
     
$d Background  
 

To take forward the Government's policy objective of 'Promoting a Sense of Worthiness among the Elders', the Social Welfare Department (SWD) launched the 'Opportunities for the Elderly Project' (OEP) in 1998-1999 with funding support from the Lotteries Fund. Since April 2003, the OEP has become regularised. Through subsidising various social service organisations, district organisations, and educational institutes, etc., to carry out a wide range of programmes, the OEP has been providing various opportunities for the elderly persons to unleash their potentials, further their contribution to society and cultivate a sense of self-worthiness. In order to enhance the project continuity and intensify the service outcome, the OEP has since 2012 adopted the biennial theme and extended the duration of projects from one year to two years.

$d Theme  
 

The theme for 2018-20 is “Neighbourhood support warms the heart Generational ties please the soul”.  As part of our on-going effort, we will strive to foster mutual care and support in the neighbourhood, promote the development of an age-friendly community, and build an inclusive and caring society.  Elderly persons will then be encouraged to unleash their potential to contribute to society by playing a more active role in the community.  Meanwhile, we will strengthen inter-generational solidarity and promote respect and care for the elderly so that they will lead a meaningful life with a sense of security.
