家庭支持網
Family Network
   
 

家庭支持網是一個自2004年開始成立的平台,透過香港特殊奧運會不同的比賽與活動,讓各家長有機會參與其中,互相分享和交流。家庭支持網旨在啟發家長對智障人士的社交以至全面發展的關注。運動員於海外比賽時,家長亦會組成打氣團親赴海外觀賽,更會組成歡迎隊伍在機場迎接運動員凱旋。為凝聚更多家長的參與,家庭支持網除舉辦本地講座外,亦會派員參與國際家長會議,加強家長的特奧理念及與海外成員交流心得。過去數年,家庭支持網均有舉辦家庭健康論壇,為智障運動員及家長提供健康訊息,鼓勵他們多做健體運動及提供免費健康篩查服務。

 

The Family Network was formed in 2004 as a platform to provide opportunity for parents to participate and share in various sporting events and activities organized by Special Olympics Hong Kong. Family Network aims to raise the awareness of parents towards the importance of promoting social and all-round development of athletes with intellectual disability. Volunteering parents from the Family Network will form cheering teams to support athletes while they are competing overseas. Greeting parties will also be organized to welcome the triumphant return of the Hong Kong Delegation at the airport. In order to encourage the participation of parents and enhance cohesion in the Family Network, both local and international seminars are held regularly to help parents better understand the mission and belief of Special Olympics. These give them the opportunity to exchange their experiences with overseas members.

Family Health Forum was organized by the Family Network in the past few years providing health information to athletes with intellectual disability and parents to encourage them to do more fitness exercise  and provide free health screening services to them.
