Provide legal aid and counselling services to the most vulnerable refugees in Hong Kong.
Refugees from all over the world and survivors of modern slavery.
The Justice Centre is the first and only non-profit organization in Hong Kong to provide free legal aid to vulnerable refugees.
The Justice Centre provides free and independent legal information to all persons seeking asylum in Hong Kong and provides one-on-one legal counselling and counselling services for the most vulnerable refugees.
The Justice Centre is also committed to advocating refugees, other asylum-seekers and survivors of modern slavery, and hopes that the public can hear their voices and demands.
About 86% of the world's refugees are in developing countries. There are currently about 10,000 refugees from Somalia, Pakistan, Egypt, the Central African Republic and Luanda in Hong Kong. The refugee population is the least in the world.
Justice Centre Hong Kong is a non-profit organization that is committed to defending rights for those who are forced to move to Hong Kong. The people who suffer from forced migration include refugees, other asylum seekers, and survivors of modern slavery.
Justice Centre Hong Kong was established in 2014 and was formerly known as the Hong Kong Refugee Advice Centre (HKRAC). Over the past seven years, HKRAC has helped more than 2,000 refugees (including men, women and children) to start a new life.
This Council provides free and independent legal information and assistance to asylum seekers. We also provide one-on-one legal counseling and counselling services to the most vulnerable people. As far as advocacy work is concerned, Justice Centre Hong Kong is committed to influencing government policies and legislation and is adequately protected for those who are forced to move. We will also conduct research and work with schools, universities and the media to change the mindset of the existing system and the public.
