True inclusion can only occur when the whole community signs up to create a welcoming environment where everyone can belong.
We collaborate with 17 Welcome Hubs in local communities across Brisbane—local community organisations that want to welcome their newest neighbours. Through cultural conversations, storytelling, training, International Women’s Day events, Harmony Day celebrations, community festivals and forums, we find ways for people to connect and participate in the social and economic life of Queensland. Apart from making new friends and social connections, they discover pathways to training and employment, understand more about their local community, and learn about local supports and services.
Australians old and new have been profoundly impacted by their Welcome Hub experiences:
“I learned about the incredible courage and resilience of refugees.”
“I was awed by the inspiring joy that they had and how they saw everything as a new opportunity.”
“I want to meet more Aboriginal people, because they are the owners of the land.”
“I felt that I am not isolated in foreign country and I have many friends that we could celebrate together and connect.”
