Unlocking potential: Meeting the educational needs of Hongkongers in Britain
This is the report of a study on the educational needs of Hongkongers in the UK. The study covers the needs of school children and young adults who have moved to Britain from Hong Kong since 2020.
This is the first UK-wide survey conducted by a UK-Hongkonger civil society organisation that focuses on the topic of educational needs amongst Hong Kong arrivals in the UK.
This report and its findings aim to advise the UK, regional and local governments, education institutions, service providers, and other non-governmental organisations on devising more inclusive policies or delivering more inclusive services.
About Initiative SAFE
In October 2020, HKB launched Initiative SAFE – a programme to conduct a series of four studies promoting inclusive public policy for Hongkongers settling in the UK. SAFE stands for the four topics to be studied – 1.) Community Security, 2.) Assistance to Vulnerable Groups, 3.) Full Integration and 4.) Educational Needs. The study on educational needs is the first of the series.
