OUR NATIONAL CALD INITIATIVES

 In support of The Salvation Army's culturally and linguistically diverse audiences, we provide a holistic range of services that better equip these communities and new migrants to thrive in Australia. Below are several examples that The Salvation Army offer to CALD communities across Australia:

  • English Conversation Classes

  • Salvation Army Humanitarian Employment Services (Eplus Local), a holistic initiative that assists people seeking asylum to find paid work and help meet their practical and social needs while they await the outcomes of their visa application

  • Drive for Life, a driver training and mentoring program that equips people who face barriers to education, training, and employment to attain their driver’s license

  • The Welcome Project, a program that connects local families to newly arrived immigrants, refugees and people seeking asylum to provide a sense of belonging to those new in Australia.

  • Salvo Stores and Food markets, that provide affordable goods (such as furniture) and groceries to those in need

  • Providing Culturally Inclusive faith communities within our local churches (corps)

 

Programs such as the above, enable us to journey alongside local community members as they adjust to life in Australia.
