In a bid to support persons in custody to pursue education and vocational training through community involvement, the Department has set up a subsidy scheme, viz. the ‘TWGHs Positive Life Education Fund’ (TWGHsPLEF) starting from May 2019 with a total donation of HK$1,200,000 with HK$200,000 in 2018/2019 and HK$200,000 each in the next five years from Tung Wah Group of Hospitals (TWGHs) to provide financial assistance directly by the money donated to needy persons in custody to pay for education / vocational training course fees, public examination fees as well as procurement of textbooks, study aids and education resources.
The Department invites applications for financial assistance three times a year.
