we enable people with migrant and refugee backgrounds to feel at home in Australia
Spectrum delivers services to newly arrived and/or established
people with migrant and refugee backgrounds. We work together with diverse communities and individuals to successfully settle in all aspects of community life by:
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
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.
Youth Transitions Service Provider Flyer
'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.'
ASRC Food Justice Truck
Hume City Hub (61 Riggall St, Dallas, Victoria)
12:30:00 - 15:00:00
The Food Justice Truck (FJT) is an award-winning, mobile fresh food market that enhances food security for people seeking asylum in the Victorian community by offering locally sourced produce, grains, legumes, tea and bread at a 75% discount to people seeking asylum. The Food Justice Truck also welcomes general public shoppers who pay local market rates.
It is the world’s first retail model that enables the general public to invest in locally sourced produce (with low carbon miles) and also support the ASRC to re-invest profits into the provision of fresh food for people seeking asylum at a price that they can afford.
The Truck is a social enterprise initiative by the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre (ASRC) and was launched this year to tackle the growing food insecurity felt by more than 10,000 people in Victoria who are on bridging visas.
