Accessibility of Government Premises, Facilities and Services


It is Government's established policy objective to provide a barrier-free environment for persons with disabilities with a view to enabling them to access to premises and make use of the facilities and services therein on an equal basis with others, thereby facilitating them to live independently and fully integrate into the community.


To facilitate Government-wide collaborated efforts in enhancing the accessibility of Government premises and facilities, the Government has established an Access Co-ordinator and Access Officer Scheme. An Access Co-ordinator is responsible for co-ordinating accessibility issues within individual bureau or department, whereas an Access Officer is responsible for, among other things, offering assistance to persons with disabilities in access to the venue under his/her management and using the services and facilities therein, and handling public enquiries and complaints regarding accessibility issues for the venue.


Barrier-free facilities of the Labour and Welfare Bureau’s offices are as follows –
