Established in 1989, HELP for Domestic Workers is a non-profit organisation dedicated to empowering migrant domestic workers in Hong Kong. Through our core pillars of Preventing Crisis, Responding to Needs and Building Resilient Communities, we strive to address the unique needs of these individuals in a non-judgmental manner.

At HELP, we understand that our beneficiaries require a holistic approach to their challenges. We offer case counselling, education on rights and responsibilities, emergency shelter, mental well-being support, and opportunities for community leadership. By providing this comprehensive support, we aim to empower migrant domestic workers and help them navigate the complex issues they may face.

In addition to empowering migrant domestic workers, HELP also serves as a valuable resource for employers seeking guidance on the rights and entitlements of domestic workers and resolving conflicts. By promoting dialogue and understanding, we strive to create an inclusive environment where both parties can learn from each other and work towards positive change. This collaborative approach aims to build harmonious and mutually beneficial working relationships between employers and domestic workers in Hong Kong.

Our Vision

Our vision is an equal world where all migrant workers have the opportunity to succeed

Our Mission

Our mission is to empower migrant domestic workers in Hong Kong to access their rights through education, advice, community and employer engagement.

Our History

In 1989, HELP was founded by Barrister James Collins to address the urgent need for migrant domestic workers to access justice through advice on their rights and assistance in casework. As the demand for our services grew exponentially, so did the resources provided by HELP. As Hong Kong’s landscape and the needs of migrant domestic workers changed, our organisation recognised the importance of growth and adaptation. We have continually evolved to better serve the community and ensure that migrant domestic workers are empowered, protected, and equipped with the knowledge and resources they need to succeed.

In 2021, HELP Ltd. was established as an independent charity under Section 88 of the Inland Revenue Department. This development marked an important milestone in our journey, granting us the autonomy and framework to continue our mission effectively. We are able to further strengthen our commitment to supporting migrant domestic workers and advocating for their rights.
