We believe diverse cultural perspectives strengthen our community, which is why we are on a mission to build a more inclusive Australia.

Through skill building and social equity - we work with refugees, asylum seekers and migrants to build new pathways.

Our people-first approach puts migrants, asylum seekers and refugees in the frontline for opportunities. We know from 40 years of operating as a not-for-profit providing community services that people’s needs are complex which is why we offer:

  • Diverse leaders and community ambassadors to find solutions for problems, large and small
  • Hands-on training, mentoring and a flexible approach to learning enables all skill levels to find a place in our programs.
  • Childcare and community programs give people the support they need to access education.
  • Work placements and training creates opportunities to enter the workforce.
