Community Inclusion

We seek to create thriving and harmonious communities by working to create the conditions by which people affected by displacement can be integrated and valued. We believe that effective integration and self-reliance of individuals is not possible without a whole of community approach that recognises the needs of both newcomers and established communities.

 

Our work with communities focuses on partnerships and co-design to ensure that we value local knowledge and experiences and ensure that our work is relevant and has maximum impact. We also draw upon coaching models of practice that seek to facilitate, guide and mentor communities and individuals towards independent action.

Some examples of our community inclusion work include:

  • Newcomers Community Incubator in Adelaide supporting communities to mobilise around the needs of newcomers

  • Community garden in Bangkok working on food security for Thai and refugee residents

  • Developing child protection capacity with Rohingya in Kuala Lumpur
