The policy of Wing Hong
Elderly Project is to provide equal opportunity for the elderly
Chinese in access to various social, health, welfare and housing
services. The Project offers elderly CHinese a complimentarty channel
to mainstream service and care provision so that their specific
needs can be met.
The project also networks with other ethnic minority projects to
promote better understanding between communities and enlarge service
provisions through shared resources.
From 1989 to 1996, Wing Hong had been using the Multi-cultural
Centre at 21 Rose Street for gatherings and functions. On the 20th
August 1996, the Centre moved to leased premises at Fleming House
in Renfrew Street. Financial Assistance was offered by the Social
Work Department and a substantial amount of refurbishment costs
was also raised from the wider Chinese Community throughout the
West of Scotland. The Centre provided for both the Chinese Day Care
Project of NW Area3 and the Wing Hong Project. The Centre was registered
in compliance with the Council's regulations and was equipped with
Dure to the expiry of the lease of the premises at Fleming House,
we had a hard time looking for a new place to settle down. In January
2005, we finally moved to our present premises.
Wing Hong is funded by the Glasgow City Council and also works
closely with the NHS of Greater Glasgow.
