In order to help Hong Kong families moving to UK, it’s good to know more about their needs.
The HK movers are starting from the beginning, so getting accurate information about available accommodation, schools, jobs, travel, tax and finance etc is important. Some general daily tips about DIY, gardening, grocery shopping and official applications (eg obtaining a National Insurance number, registering with a local GP, and applying for a driving licence) are needed. Language is another of the difficulties. Many have experienced their relationships with family members and friends being ripped apart by polarized political opinions.
These are all pressures faced by Hong Kong families arriving in the UK.
