Background of co-organiser

Christian Family Service Centre (CFSC) is a non-profit social service organization rooted in Hong Kong for over 63 years. For many years, CFSC is deeply connected and affectively tied with this city and its people. We keep pace with Hong Kong’s development and spearhead innovation in areas of social services, medical and health services, and environmental protection.

Turning 50 is a milestone that the second half of life is unveiled. Active Ageing Services steer people in their 50s towards a flourishing life with various novel services, including ‘School of Good Life’ and ‘Life Coach Service for the Third Age’ a first-of-its-kind service in Hong Kong tailored for people in their 50s. They are now looking for high caliber candidate to contribute their ideas and support our works under the InnovAGE Team.
