Established in 1947, the Hong Kong Council of Social Service is a federation of non-government social service agencies of Hong Kong which aims to plan and coordinate large scale relief works and social welfare.  The Council has been an essential partner of the Hong Kong Government in social welfare and development for more than 60 years.  Today the Council represents more than 400 Agency Members, providing over 90% of the social welfare service through their operating units in Hong Kong. 

In 2002, the Council launched the Caring Company Scheme (the Scheme), aiming to foster strategic partnerships between the business and social services sectors to promote good corporate citizenship and create a more inclusive society.  The Scheme also helps corporations and social services organisations to understand one another at a much deeper level.  This has largely stimulated the development on cross-sector projects that focus on the needs of the community.  In 2013/14, 2,768 companies and organisations were awarded the Caring Company/Caring Organisation logos.  This is an indication that local companies and organisations recognise the importance of corporate social responsibility, and that more of them are willing to take up that responsibility to care for the community.
