Pilot Scheme on Residential Care Service Voucher (RCSV) for the Elderly


The Social Welfare Department (SWD) launched the Pilot Scheme on Residential Care Service Voucher (RCSV) for the Elderly (Pilot Scheme) in March 2017 with maximum of 3 000 RCSVs to be issued in total. Adopting the "money-following-the-user" principle, the Pilot Scheme provides an additional choice for elderly persons in need of residential care services and waitlisted for care-and-attention (C&A) places on the Central Waiting List (CWL). The Pilot Scheme has been extended for three years from March 2020 to March 2023. In February 2022, the Government has announced in the 2022-23 Budget that the Pilot Scheme on Residential Care Service Voucher for the Elderly will be regularised and the number of RCSVs will be increased from 3 000 to 4 000 starting from 2022-23 so as to benefit more elderly persons.
