Introduction
 

Since the establishment of the Community Care Fund (CCF) in 2011, the work of the CCF was overseen and coordinated by the then Steering Committee on the CCF. An Executive Committee and four Subcommittees (Education, Home Affairs, Medical and Welfare) were set up under the Steering Committee to support the CCF's operation.

Following the reinstatement of the Commission on Poverty (CoP) by the Government in December 2012, the CCF has been integrated into the work of the CoP since 2013. The CCF Task Force, set up under the CoP, will continue to implement the existing CCF assistance programmes and draw up new projects, and take forward measures on a pilot basis to help the Government identify those that can be considered for incorporation into the regular assistance and service programmes.

For CCF assistance programmes administering by the Social Welfare Department, please refer to the details on individual programme.
