Arabic Welfare works with a broad range of mainstream services to equip and empower them to effectively support communities from diverse Arabic speaking countries. We do this through various avenues, including strengthening cultural understanding and appropriateness, increasing access to community networks, provision of secondary consultations and fostering referral pathways.
Arabic Welfare has been working with communities from diverse Arabic speaking countries for over 30 years. We share our knowledge and expertise with mainstream services through customised interactive cross cultural training to strengthen cultural understanding and build skills to enable effective service provision. The training comes complete with a guide for engaging Arabic Speaking families and includes a best practice checklist and other helpful resources.
Arabic Welfare have qualified bilingual counsellors and social workers that support clients with a range of complex issues including family violence, gambling and alcohol addictions, mental health and financial challenges. We play a significant role in coordinating the care of clients who often struggle with language and accessing mainstream services.
