Thank you to the Moreland City Council for supporting our Refugee Week celebrations.
Unfortunately, an afternoon tea planned for this weekend by our Asylum Seeker Welcome Centre and fellow community service organisations for people seeking asylum in the Moreland area has been cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Instead, the Council has kindly provided food vouchers with the funding allocated to host the event.
The local library has also provided craft packs for local families to enjoy during the school holidays.
We have recently joined forces with the Council to improve access to local services for local refugees and people seeking asylum, including free access to aquatic and leisure facilities, free swim classes for children and access to school holiday programs.
Our multicultural services aim to build connection, reduce isolation and provide a positive future for people newly arrived in our community.
