Introduction

 

Background

The Chief Executive announced in the 2015 Policy Address that the Government will commission a consultancy study on how to support disabled athletes and promote sports participation by people with disabilities (PWDs) in a more comprehensive manner.  The Home Affairs Bureau engaged the Hong Kong Baptist University to conduct the “Consultancy Study on Sport for People with Disabilities in Hong Kong”.  It is recommended that the Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) should launch a scheme in some of its venues for relevant organisations to make priority bookings for non-peak slots to organise sports activities such as training courses and inclusive activities suitable for PWDs.

Focus Group

In response to the recommendations in the Consultancy Study, a Focus Group was set up, inviting relevant organisations of PWDs to work together to draw up the priority booking arrangements and facility enhancement proposals for the designated sports centres under the scheme.
