The Nesbitt Centre provides an English-speaking educational programme for international adults with learning disabilities – also a respite and residential facility, which helps to achieve independence and development of their own potential and opportunities within the community.
It was founded in 1993 as the Hong Kong Vocational Centre Charitable Trust, and incorporated in 2006 under a limited company, The Nesbitt Centre Ltd. The Centre was established as a direct result of the lack of facilities for non-native Chinese speakers in Hong Kong.
The Centre is a charitable, not-for-profit organisation and complies fully with the Social Welfare Department’s Service Quality Standards. It is seen as a model in terms of promoting community integration through life skills and work training for adults with learning disabilities.
