- Opportunities for the Elderly Project (OEP)

Opportunities for the Elderly Project

     
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.

Theme  
  The theme in 2022-24 is “Promote Well-Being through Connecting the Generations”. We will continue to encourage the elderly to take an active part in a variety of community activities so that they may unleash their potentials and apply their new knowledge and skills to serving and contributing to the community, thereby living their life to the fullest. We will also promote the spirit of care and mutual help, and foster social harmony to ensure that the elderly enjoy their golden years
