Computers from Crossroads are helping the Neighbourhood Advice-Action Councils’ Shun Tin hostel care better for the 19 adults with intellectual disabilities in their home. Previously, it was only the staff who had computers, for essential office admin work. They asked us for computers for their clients to use as well. The dedicated staff are always looking for more ways to enhance their residents’ quality of life and give them new experiences. One computer from Crossroads is being used to play audio and videos at their community dance classes. Another is available throughout the day for the residents to use so they can learn valuable skills, and engage more with the world around them.

“We believe it’s important to allow our clients to use computers in this era of technology,” said staff. “Knowing how to use computers is an important skill in modern society.”

The hostel has generous government assistance, but when it comes to furniture, computers and other needs for the shared rooms and offices, it can be hard to make space in their budget. Crossroads has loved partnering with NAAC to fill this gap!
