I think it is obvious that some services should be specifically the government's responsibility to uphold. In this case, children have rights and we have to maintain and uphold them, but sometimes government-funded programs have long waiting lists because they don't have enough funding and because they offer services for free. So I think it's beneficial to also have private organizations too to alleviate some of the stress put on public services and free up spaces for low-income families who need the services since higher-income families are able to pay for private services.

Could you please give us a clue about how service users apply for the occupational therapy service of SRACP? As we want to evaluate the convenience for applicants to get access to this service.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?

I have designed a large-scale survey about the life satisfaction of low-income families in Hong Kong. Is it appropriate to use the electronic survey through mobile phones?
