Rehabilitation Seating Serivce

The Jockey Club Rehabilitation Seating Service is composed of 2 services 1) adaptive seating; and 2) wheelchair and mobility aids repair service. Our objective is to provide a non-profit making one-stop service to those in need.

Since 1986, our Association has been providing repair service to wheelchairs and various mobility aids. In 1991 the Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust supported the recurrent expenses. In 1998, the Association pioneered the adaptive seating service. In 1999, due to the huge demand from the community for adaptive seating, The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust supported the Association to set up the Jockey Club Rehabilitation Seating Service Centre and supported its recurrent costs. In 2008, in order to enhance the service quality and cost effectiveness, the Association combined the 2 services into " The Hong Kong Jockey Club Community Project Grant : Comprehensive Rehabilitation Seating Service” to provide a one-stop service to better serve those in need.
