The Government is committed to promoting the use of information and communications technology among special need groups. The Office of the Government Chief Information Officer launched a funding scheme since 2012 to provide funding support for non-profit social service organisations to develop customised mobile apps that address the special needs of individual target group and bring convenience to their daily lives. A total of 17 mobile apps have been funded and developed, benefiting the elderly, persons with disabilities, children with special educational needs and ethnic minorities.
