Serving all Arabic Speaking Communities

Family Support

Arabic Welfare’s Family Services support clients through separate projects designed to support parents and their children, both independently and together. Our Family Services are funded by the Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs (FaHCSIA) and the Department of Social Services.

The ASFLT program is an early intervention program which aims to engage, support, empower and educate Arabic speaking families (parents and children) to develop healthy relationships, resilience, and increase in school connectedness.

Funded by the Department of Justice Community Safety Fund, the ‘Harmony within the Family’ project is a family violence education project. After conducting 2 focus groups to discuss and gauge participants’ understandings of family violence issues, we facilitated 6 education workshops with 15 men and 16 women. 

The intergenerational program works with parents and their children in separate groups to support families to resolve conflicts constructively and bridge intergenerational gaps during the first five years of their settlement in Australia.

This program offers families the time and space to strengthen family relationships over a few days in a popular location of Australia’s natural heritage. It also fosters new friendships with other families who are sharing similar experiences in their new community.

Cross Cultural Training

  • Our Cross Cultural Training is aimed at non-Arabic workers and school staff from a variety of backgrounds, who are working with Arabic speaking clients and students.

    Our training workshops are interactive and assist participants to better understand, work and communicate with people of diverse Arabic speaking backgrounds.
