Details of Pilot Scheme

 

Target group

The sampled groups of the Consultancy Study on Sport for People with Disabilities in Hong Kong are continued to be chosen for the Pilot Scheme.  They include members of organisations targeted at serving people with motor disability, visual impairment, hearing impairment or intellectual disability.  The organisations concerned should be bona fide associations and corporations, as well as registered with Certificate of Incorporation under the Companies Ordinance, or Certificate of Registration of a Society under the Societies Ordinance.
