Influencing society to build more inclusive communities
Delivering culturally appropriate and responsive settlement and family services
Empowering communities to identify and address settlement challenges
Assisting ageing people with a disability and/or with migrant and refugee backgrounds to participate in life at home and in the community
Our new Girls Hang Out program offers chance for girls and women aged 15-24, who are newly arrived refugees or migrants, to embrace their culture, learn new skills, form friendships, participate in healthy activities and have fun!
Girls Hang Out happens every Tuesday from 4.30-6pm at our Sunshine office (161 Harvester Road, Sunshine). Check out the map and flyer below. This is a free weekly program. If you're interested please contact Kumari on 0418674634 or email@example.com.
If you are aged between 15-25 and from a refugee or migrant background you can receive help getting ready for work or education and have some fun at the same time!
The Youth Transitions Support Pilot Program facilitates participation in education and employment for young people of refugee and migrant background aged 15-25 years. The program places a strong focus on workplace readiness, access to employment and vocational opportunities, and creating strong social connections.
Every Tuesday from 1.30-3.30pm, we will be open to new participants for the program.

'Advantaged thinking represents a shift in the way we think about and respond to young people experiencing disadvantage and exclusion. It recognises all young people have a vital contribution to make to the social and economic life of our communities and society. To do so, all young people should have access to the opportunities and social networks that facilitate social and economic participation. Advantaged thinking acknowledges barriers for young people but focuses on the young person's innate skills and talents and investing in these talents appropriately.'
