Support Women facing Marital Adversity

婚姻逆境支援

 

What social need is addressed in this programme?

 

  • Pressure of separated and/or divorced women

According to the data provided by the Census and Statistics Department, number of divorce decrees granted reached a record high of 19,597 in 2011. In the same year, there were 81,705 single-parent families, in which single mothers accounted for 64,040, which had climbed 35.6% when compared to 47,215 ten years ago. The Association’s research on “Hong Kong Women’s Views on separation and divorce” done in 2013 showed that women felt helpless and became depressed after separation or divorce. Around 15% found no one available to help and talk to. They scored only 4.53 (out of 10) when it came to information about related social services. The research indicated that women lack support and are stressed in times of difficulties.
