Welcome2Sydney is a project co-designed by City of Sydney and SSI. The project aims to encourage inclusiveness and strengthen a sense of belonging by engaging ambassadors from the City of Sydney local government area to engage in community acts of welcoming refugees/new arrivals.
The initiative will help refugees/new arrivals to feel welcome and more connected, establish relationships and boost their self-confidence to access and participate in what the City of Sydney can offer. It will also assist the broader City of Sydney community to increase their understanding of the humanitarian program and refugee needs and also offer them a unique opportunity to engage in an intercultural experience to learn from, and about, each other.
Welcoming activities can include social, cultural and recreational activities available in the City of Sydney Council area.
