Providing multicultural care for 40+ years, this organisation still leads from the front …
Around Queensland in the 1980’s, it was critically apparent that needs of migrants and people from refugee backgrounds, were not being fully met by mainstream services. So, this organisation was formed to connect people of diverse backgrounds, languages and culture into an inclusive community where diversity and change were prized.
For 40+ years, this ethical entity has stayed loyal to that vision – supporting untold thousands by building bridges of trust and understanding, nurturing friendships, improving lives and igniting hope.
Here in 2024 – still providing vital services to mainstream and CALD communities – this progressive NFP continues to shape vibrant change through the development of innovative, in-home services to enrich the care of older people, appreciating how crucial ethnic history, cradle language, and special celebrations can improve the lives of their clients.
Grow the future of this vital outreach service….
