Children’s Program

It can be difficult for individuals and families who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless and especially if you are from a migrant or refugee background. We provide transitional accommodation, (short to medium term), with a focus on transitioning families into long term, affordable and sustainable accommodation. We accept referrals from services and organisations who assist families who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. Referred families need to have a government payment or an income to access a bond and finalise rent.

Funded by the Department of Communities to assist families from a migrant and refugee background who are homeless or at risk of homelessness with supported, transitional accommodation to support their needs and abilities to access and maintain stable and long-term accommodation.

Access Housing and Multicultural Futures have a well-established, collaborative working relationship going back many years. We look forward to continuing and building upon this relationship into the years ahead as we partner to assist some of the community’s most vulnerable people.

We rely heavily on the support of agencies and programs such as Multicultural Futures in order to ensure best outcomes and recovery for people. The contribution of this flexible and culturally sensitive agency is a partnership that we will continue to build and foster.

With help from Multicultural Futures, we now stand on our own feet and by paying tax hopefully, we can give the opportunity for another family to make change for a more peaceful and prosperous life.

We highly valued Multicultural Futures’ contribution to developing our first Cultural Diversity Strategy. They brought a wealth of cultural insight and strong community connections with newly settled Cockburn community members which ensured a rich diversity of views were captured.

I feel much more confident in my interactions with families from migrant or refugee background.

There are things I can do now to help improve my intercultural communication efficiency – from strategies listed by participants

I loved learning about the different communications styles of different cultures and the importance of my own personal cultural glasses

Even though I thought I had great understanding of cultural awareness I realise I need to continue to develop my skills and knowledge
