Our Multicultural Services support and empower humanitarian entrants, refugees, and other permanent migrants and their communities. Our mission is to facilitate their successful integration into Australian society, promoting diversity and inclusion within the Northern Beaches. To achieve these objectives, we provide comprehensive case management and implement programs that foster enhanced social participation and community connections, increased sense of belonging, improved economic and personal well-being and greater independence.

My Settlement Journey
Stepping into a New World

Storytellers from Tibet, Germany, Japan, Czech Republic, Sicily, and South America met with volunteer writers from the local community to share their stories about how they overcame the challenges of settling into a new country.

ESL Mentoring Program
ESL program involves a volunteer being matched with a local migrant or refugee with the aim of them meeting once per week in a public place to participate in an everyday situation such as having a coffee or shopping. The goal of this program is simply to ensure new migrants have enough conversational English to feel confident in everyday situations and job interviews and be able to follow instructions when offered a position. Participants on both sides of this program find the experience of connecting with one another rewarding. If you are interested in learning more, please click the button below to get in touch.
We coordinate driving lessons using a CNB car with the assistance of volunteers. Our goal is to support newly settled refugees obtain their driver licence to remove a barrier to employment and promote greater independence and mobility.
