Community Development and Capacity Building

Our Community Development and Capacity Building programs strengthen the participation, inclusion and contribution of culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities.

Our project work:

  • Informs community members of their rights and supports them to understand their responsibilities in Australia.
  • Empowers community members to participate in all aspects of community life that builds social and economic independence.
  • Engages community leaders and members in co-design processes that place their unique lived experiences at the center of the solutions.
  • Collaborates with mainstream service providers to increase their capacity to understand and meet the needs of culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities.
  • Advocates for equal access to mainstream services and non-discriminatory practices that disadvantage our culturally diverse community members.
