Day 14: Humanitarian Settlement Services
Diversitat provides intensive settlement support to newly-arrived humanitarian clients throughout their initial settlement period.
The program aims to strengthen the ability of refugee families and individuals to participate in the economic and social life of Australia.
Over the past 12 months, Diversitat has assisted over 250 newly arrived refugees settle in Geelong. These families have come from a variety of countries and cultures including Iraq, Burma, Afghanistan, Liberia and the Sudan. The majority of these people arrive having experienced significant trauma and conflict in their country of origin.
You can support the Diversitat by donating to the Celebrating Diversity Christmas Appeal.
