On the Northern Beaches we are lucky enough to be surrounded by so many different cultures of people, from all corners of the globe. Some have lived here their whole lives, and others have only recently arrived. At Community Northern Beaches we love welcoming new residents and focus on making their transition as easy as possible, like Haasan and his family who recently celebrated his 1st Birthday here in Australia.
A program that assists with this, is our supported playgroup that takes place at Brookvale Community Centre every Thursday. One of our families recently celebrated their son Haasun’s 1st birthday, as well as a cultural blessing that Lyndsay, our family and child worker, was lucky enough to attend.
One year-old Haasun has recently arrived to the Northern Beaches with his mother Priya, and Father Nanda from India. The supported playgroup has helped them meet new friends in the area, and offers guidance and care to help them settle in to the community.
