Since 1st June 2013, Caritas Macau hosted the " 24-hour Urgent Support Services Helpline" entrusted by the Social Welfare Bureau serving all year round. By combining the strengths of the government and the people, we can respond more flexibly and more closely to the needs of service targets and jointly provide immediate emergency services for individuals or families in need.
In alignment with the vision of Caritas, the service provides a wide range of services, including, 24-hour crisis management, emotional support and referral services for people and families facing personal or family crisis through immediate crisis intervention. Immediate crisis intervention helps those individuals and families to recognize and learn how to deal with emergencies. The purpose is to relieve the client's current dilemma and urgent problems.
