We aim to help migrants and refugees transition into life on the Northern Beaches as easily as possible, particularly in their first five years of settlement in Australia.
We can assist in a number of areas, including:
Applying for and accessing government, health, and financial services
Free computer usage
Homework Club for children with English as their second language
Social and community programs
ESL Conversation Project
Earlier this year, it became apparent that although many new Tibetan migrants have completed courses and are now qualified for work, they may not be taken on by employers due to their lack of English skills. Thus, the ESL Conversation programme was born. The programme involves a volunteer being matched with a Tibetan local 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 end goal of this programme is simply to ensure new migrants have enough conversational English to feel confident in a job interview and be able to follow instructions when offered a job. Participants on both sides of this programme find the experience of connecting with one another rewarding. If you are interested in learning more, please complete the contact form below;
