Description

While talking about improving the world through engineering, it is no doubt that we mechanical engineers are making contribution every day in our working positions. But, have you ever thought of contributing our expertise in a non-working position? Here is an opportunity for you!

Our Community Service Group (CSG) of IMechE HKB is now launching a new service project with 1st Step Association. The service project consists of 3 sessions (one session per month), scheduled to be held on Saturday on the following dates:

Session 1: 13 October 2018 (Training Workshop at Centre)
Session 2: 17 November 2018 (Training Workshop at Centre)
Session 3: 15 December 2018 (Home Visiting to Disable People)

Social worker of 1st Step Association will provide Training and Workshop to participants in the Session 1 & 2. Participants will gain knowledge and experience in social services for disable people and wheelchair users. 

In Session 3 before Christmas, volunteers will Visit the home of Wheelchair Users, targeting to conduct survey to record the needs and problems in their daily life at home. Christmas Presents and other daily resources will also be delivered by volunteers to share the care and love to the disable people. 

(p.s. Participants are recommended to join all sessions to get knowledge and experience in serving the disable people.)

Data collected in the survey during home visiting will act as information record for 1st Step Association to conduct follow-up service works in future, such as installation of i-home devices, and repairing and improvement works for disable people’s home.

You may refer to the attached information sheet for the details of the volunteer services.
