The Club places great importance on helping rehabilitation patients develop their potential through making donations to multi-faceted support services. On the education front, READ & WRITE: A Jockey Club Learning Support Network, which was specially designed to help children with learning difficulties (mainly dyslexia) overcome their challenges in reading and writing, has benefitted more than 420,000 students from pre-school to secondary levels.
The Club's support has also made a monumental difference in the development of rehabilitation hardware and services. This includes the city's first transitional care and support centre for paralysis patients, and a programme to nurture local expertise in home dialysis treatment, making Hong Kong the first city in Asia to do so. Funding from the Club's Charities Trust is also helping to redevelop the Hong Chi Pinehill Village in Tai Po into the largest rehabilitation complex for people with intellectual disabilities in Hong Kong. And as the first of its kind in the city, the Trust-initiated JC A-Connect: Jockey Club Autism Support Network is designed to support children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and their families by adopting an all-round holistic approach, encompassing their needs at the individual, school and community level.
