The CCF “Training Subsidy for Children who are on the Waiting List of Subvented Pre-school Rehabilitation Services” assistance programme (TSP) had been regularised since 1 October 2014.  The Programme aims to provide training subsidy for children from low income family on the waiting list of subvented pre-school rehabilitation services, which enables them to acquire training and treatment provided by recognised service providers so as to facilitate their learning and development while waiting for subvented services.  To further enhance the support for children on the waiting list of SCCCs [including Residential Special Child Care Centres (RSCCC)], the Government has provided a non-means-tested training subsidy for these children with effect from 1 October 2017 and increased the number of subsidy places under TSP to about 3 000 per year.  As at 31 March 2022, there were about 1 679 higher level subsidy places for children waitlisted for SCCCs, and about 1 475 normal level subsidy places for children waitlisted for Early Education and Training Centres, the Integrated Programme in KG-cum-CCCs or On-site Pre-school Rehabilitation Services.
