Community Social Responsibility (CSR)
St. John's Cathedral is an established charity in Hong Kong that provides support to Hong Kong residents and visitors in many ways. From the very first time a stone was laid on Hong Kong island in 1841 thru recent Cathedral modifications in 2015 (and more improvements coming in 2016), St. John's Cathedral has continually sought ways to help others in time of need regardless of race, ethnic group, age, religion, sexual orientation and residency. The Counselling Service is one such outreach ministry activity at St. John's Cathedral that addresses well-being and mental health needs of both residents and visitors in Hong Kong with one of the most largest and well respected counselling services in Hong Kong.
St. John's Cathedral Counselling Service CSR
The community social responsibility (CSR) of the Counselling Service actually begins with each and every individual who works at the Counselling Service either in a paid, volunteer or an internship role. In short, we believe that for any organization, charity, for profit or NGO, to be recognized as a social responsible entity in the community, those members of that organization must bring forth an individual social responsibility value as well (ISRV). The Counselling Service is both proud and blessed to have a wonderful team of ISRV counsellors who seek the self-worth journey versus net-worth journey when we provide our counselling services to our clients. Improving upon the happy life and well-being clearly enhances growth and possible prosperity in the good life is one such value we embrace with our CSR. We strongly believe that because we hire, train and maintain a workforce of ISRV counsellors, our organization CSR culture is safe, professional, caring and accountable and thus our CRS and ISRV ensures we continually seek ways to give back to the community, be responsible to the environment and find sustainable practices for the Cathedral, our Counselling Service, the community and our planet.
