Let's talk workshop for recent arrivals

Workshops for refugees, asylum seekers, and newly arrived migrants

We have two workshops about Australian law for refugees, asylum seekers, and newly arrived migrants. The workshops are very visual and can be delivered to audiences with varying levels of English - from pre English to more advanced levels. We can also book an interpreter.

These workshops can be booked by workers in organisations who provide services to refugees, asylum seekers and newly arrived migrants. They are for groups run by Migrant Resource Centres, multicultural and diversity services, services for asylum seekers and refugees, and educational services.

Both workshops are for client groups of 15 -30 people and can run from 1-3 hours depending on your needs.  Topics can be tailored to the needs of your group.
