our performance

Social Innovation in Action

We support innovative projects of different forms and at various stages of development for preventing and alleviating poverty and social exclusion, promoting social integration and enhancing people's well-being and cohesion of society.
A total of 274 projects have been funded under Innovative Programmes as of August 2021.

Get Involved

Have an innovative idea? We have engaged intermediaries to administer capacity building programmes and funding schemes. Individuals and organisations with innovative ideas in addressing poverty and social exclusion and wish to seek support for implementation may approach the intermediaries direct.

Be Inspired

Social Innovators come from different walks of life, different generations and have different backgrounds but all share the same empathy for the underprivileged and apply their expertise to drive change for social good. Be inspired by their stories.

Invitation of Funding Proposals for Enhancing the Capability and Interest of the Elderly in Learning and Adopting Digital Technologies with Participation/Employment of the Youth
Given the intensifying usage of digital products to receive instant information and maintain close connection with the society amid the novel coronavirus epidemic, the elderly, who generally have lower digital literacy, have become more isolated and vulnerable. Meanwhile, more and more young people who are in general well-versed in digital technologies have become unemployed or underemployed under the epidemic. The SIE Fund is inviting funding proposals for enhancing the capability and interest of the elderly in learning and adopting digital technologies with participation/engagement of the youth. The deadline for submission of proposals is 31 May 2021.  Details
