What are the benefits?

Building cultural responsiveness is valuable to every organisation and business. Whilst the officers offer bilingual assistance, their understanding of culture, faith, and their lived experience enables them to connect to their communities and provide enhanced support. Providing this in-culture service to your client or customer also ensures better outcomes that are based on trust and rapport.

What kind of support do Multicultural Support Officers offer?

In-Language and In-Culture services for activities such as:

  • Supporting newly arrived individuals and families in the community: including settlement orientation, form filling, building digital literacy and connecting communities with services and activities.
  • Events support: including in-language assistance to attendees and stall holders
  • Workshop facilitation or support: including in-language facilitation and language support for participants
  • Cultural consulting for teams and foster carers
  • Co-designing services, programs, and projects

Specialist services

The workforce also consists of a smaller group of staff that have the required training and experience to perform more specialised tasks such as:
