- Information Packs
The team produced two sets of information packs to raise the awareness of ethnic minorities’ rights in two specific areas: One set is related to employment and the other highlights the rights and obligations of subdivided flat tenants under the Landlord and Tenant (Consolidation) (Amendment) Ordinance 2021.
- Legal Training to NGOs
The team held a workshop for Diocesan Pastoral Centre for Workers-Kowloon (Ethnic Minority Service) staff on legal concepts relating to employment. Even though there are professional translation services available in Hong Kong, they often have to be booked in advance, while most service users of the NGO reach out to them on an ad hoc basis. The workshop was aimed at equipping the staff with the knowledge to facilitate communication with ethnic minority service users with these ad hoc enquiries.
