Serving all Arabic Speaking Communities


The Arabic speaking community represents 1.3% of the Australian population (ABS Census, 2011) with 287,174 Arabic speakers.  “Arabic speaking people” share a common language, history, heritage and belong to the cultural group broadly referred to as “Arabic”.

The migration patterns of the diverse Arabic speaking communities has varied over the years and has been mostly defined by the socio-economic factors and political circumstances of their countries of origin.

Arabic Welfare’s most recent settlement service data reflects the current countries of origin of our clients: Iraq, Lebanon, Egypt, Kuwait, Syria and Iran.
