Financial Education in Hong Kong (PGDE-PT) (New)


Background of Community Partner


Financial Education Centre (FEC), Hong Kong Family Welfare Society (HKFWS) is a charitable non-governmental social welfare organization established in 1949. We aim to deliver quality and professional social services to enhance the well-being of families and individuals in Hong Kong in order to foster a caring community. We have been providing services including integrated family services, integrated children and youth services, elderly and community support services, child care services and other specialized services.


Since 2007, the project ‘The Children Financial Literacy Project’ was launched and delivered different financial education programs to different schools. In 2017, we established the Financial Education Centre in Lai Chi Kok so as to root ourselves in the community. FEC is designed to promote the financial literacy of children, youth, and parents through experiential activities, edutainment programs, and social media platforms and reach out to different social strata in society.

Our centre is supported by various renowned funders such as HSBC, Community Chest, Hand Seng Bank, etc. The projects aim at:


  1. Enhance the awareness of the importance of financial literacy in the community
  2. Enhance the financial well-being of the younger generation, as well as their parents, in primary, secondary, and tertiary levels
  3. To develop the Financial Social Work model in the social welfare sector, from financial education to clinical intervention in Hong Kong. Since the project focuses on developing students’ attitudes and behaviours of financial management from childhood, FEC service targets are mainly primary & secondary school students and their parents.
