With the completion of services of intermediaries appointed in the first batch in or before 2020, the Fund has engaged a new batch of four intermediaries to run a new batch of “Innovative Programmes” for three years to provide incubation and support for individuals and organistions to take forward innovative projects of different nature that create social impact, facilitating the further development and enhancement of the ecosystem. The four intermediaries are Fullness Social Enterprises Society Ltd, the Hong Kong Council of Social Service, PolyU Technology and Consultancy Co Ltd and the Society of Rehabilitation and Crime Prevention, Hong Kong. While they share the common vision of addressing poverty and social exclusion by innovative solutions, individual programmes being designed and administered are unique in their own rights. The programmes also cater to different development stages of social ventures by nurturing and supporting social innovators to develop innovative projects with diversity and impact.
Innovative Programmes currently in place are as follows:
Individuals and organisations with innovative ideas in addressing poverty issues and wish to seek financial support to implement innovative projects may approach the intermediaries running Innovative Programmes directly and submit applications under their funding schemes.
