Bringing Us Together

Migrants face many challenges when settling in a new country. Through our mentoring activities, participants in the 'Bringing Us Together' program are empowered to overcome some of those challenges and improve connections with their community. 

Through our mentoring program we impart information about:

  • Australian government and available services;
  • Rights and responsibilities of Australian residents;
  • Ways of seeking employment, applying for jobs, writing resumes and job interviews;
  • Finding accommodation and tenancy agreements;
  • Purchasing goods and consumer rights;
  • English language coaching;
  • Healthy lifestyle and eating; and
  • Craft and general interest activities.

We organise outings to places of interest, such as Parliament House, museums, art galleries or historical places etc. We also celebrate cultural diversity through events such as Harmony Day.

We welcome any new migrants as well as migrants who may have been here for some time but who may not, as yet, have connected with the wider community.

 

 

OUR PREVIOUS OUTINGS

THE MUSEUM

The visit to The Australian Museum was very educational. The guided tour allowed the participants to observe fauna and minerals at close range. In particular, the section reserved for 'Aborigines and Torres Strait Islanders' was very popular and everyone tried their hand at the didgeridoo.

After a very compelling lecture by our executive officer where the hard life endured by early settlers was vividly recounted, participants were keen to discover the very buildings where this part of early Australian history had taken place.

THE ROCKS

 Prior to our visit to the Rocks, our Executive Officer, John Gillham, gave a lecture on the First Settlers in Australia. It was a very informative talk, presented with passion, and had the audience spellbound. The hard life endured by early settlers was vividly recounted and participants were keen to discover the very buildings where this part of early Australian history had taken place.

THE NSW ART GALLERY

Our recent visit to the NSW Art Gallery was educational and very enjoyable event. We were shown important works depicting the original Australian way of life and the vast expanse the country.
