So Uk Project
 
Overview

SRACP collaborates with landlords, organisations, professionals and donors to develop the ‘So Uk’ Project to provide a safe and quality living environment to ex-offenders and deprived groups who have urgent housing needs. We also help service users to enhance independent living skills and capabilities through workshops and activities. Our ultimate goal is to help them transit to a successful, independent and meaningful living in the community.

The project involves joint collaborations with:

Landlords: Owners of vacant residential units who agree to lease the units to service users at a rate of the CSSA standard rental allowance, and be responsible for unit maintenance during the cooperation period of 3-5 years.
Collaborating Organisation: Join the Community Housing Movement of The Hong Kong Council of Social Service as an operator to operate and promote co-living transitional housing.
Professional Volunteers: Invite voluntary architects and interior designers to participate in design and renovation works to create safe and quality co-living units for service users.
Residents: Ex-offenders, single families, out-of-home youths, persons in recovery and grass-root citizens.
Funders: All ‘So Uk’ Projects’ operation are supported by funders, charitable organisations and donors.
 
Target Services Users
  • Hong Kong residents aged 18 or above;
  • ‘So Uk’ units target ex-offenders while ‘So Uk 2.0’ units target individuals from different age groups and backgrounds
  • Applicants of Public Rental Housing, people who live in subdivided units, and people who are defined as having urgent housing need by Project’s Social Workers.
  • Persons who agree with the concept of co-living and co-housing and the obligation of sharing duties and responsibilities, as well as committed to carrying out personal development plan.
 
Scope of service
 
Individual Support Service: Social workers to provide individual support including counselling services and therapeutic programmes, etc. in matters related to accommodation and personal development.
Independent living skill workshops: A variety of workshops including cooking and healthy eating, household management, financial planning and management, small-scale home maintenance, etc. are offered to help enhance residents’ independent living skills and personal capacities.
Activities: Resident meetings, festive celebrations, voluntary activities, sharing and social gatherings are organised by Social Workers or initiated by residents to enhance a sense of belonging, and encourage communications and interactions.
Community and volunteering activities: Residents are encouraged to participate in community inclusion and volunteering activities to serve the others with an aim to help them integrate into the community and establish a social support network.
 
Fee*

Monthly accommodation expenses include:

  1. Accommodation fee / rent is set in reference to the CSSA rent subsidy;
  2. Water and electricity are charged based on actual usage of different units;
  3. Sundry is charged in some units based on operation need.
*The fee may vary according to the type of ‘So Uk’ units.
 
Application and Withdrawal
 
Application: Referral by Social Worker or individual submission are both accepted. All applications will be handled by responsible unit for assessment.
Period of tenure: Accommodation is set on a one-year basis, and will be reviewed every year. Project Social Worker will review service users’ accommodation needs and rehabilitation progress from time to time; and make recommendation on extension if necessary.
Withdrawal: Based on specific clauses on residential agreements, residents may terminate service voluntarily at any juncture of the service process, while Project Social Workers could also terminate the service upon professional judgment and mutual agreement made with the service users.
