The Social Support Program for Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) communities is a caring and friendly service which aims to facilitate social inclusion of older people or younger people with disability from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. In consultation with community leaders, we design and facilitate a range of social activities which aim to support, promote and enhance the independence, quality of life and well-being of the participants.
