We work with asylum seeker and refugee communities to promote health, make cultural transitions, find solutions to community issues and strengthen community groups and structures.

We work closely with bi cultural and bilingual workers and community elders and leaders to carry out this work.

We run various groups and activities for and in consultation with members of client communities in the ACT based on identified needs and choices of the particular client community.

Activities include discussion groups, sporting activities, gardening and cooking activities, playgroups and cultural celebrations.
