Event description

Description

We warmly invite you to our next Home Welcome Dinner in Telopea!

Welcome Dinners connect newly arrived people including migrants, refugees, asylum seekers and international students with established Australians over a potluck-style meal in a family home or a trusted community space.

Taking part in a Welcome Dinner is a great way for you to meet new friends in your neighbourhood and have a lot of fun!

It is free to attend but spaces are very limited so please register to secure your place! As this is a home dinner the event is listed as private and not publicly searchable on Eventbrite.

The home address will be provided to registered guests one week before the dinner.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I sign up?

Register online here. No ticket is required. Sign up every member of a family or group of friends individually in your booking. On event day, we will mark your names and assign you a dinner table number.

What food shall I bring?

Bring a savoury or sweet dish to share with other guests. One of our volunteer facilitators will contact you before the event to answer any questions.

I have special dietary requirements. Can I attend?

Yes. All guests will introduce their dishes and the ingredients before dinner starts. If you are unsure of what a dish contains, please ask our facilitators at your dinner table and they will be happy to help you. You may bring something you wish to eat yourself. Some guests may also cater to people with special dietary requirements. We advise you to be aware of your own needs and not risk anything you are not sure of.

Will alcohol be served? Can I bring my own wine or beer?

All Welcome Dinner Project events are alcohol-free. We provide water, tea, coffee, soft drinks and juice.

Can I attend if I can’t communicate fluently in English?

Yes. We welcome people from all backgrounds and encourage cross-cultural connections. Our facilitators will be happy to assist you.

Yes. We advise all children be supervised by their parents/guardians at all times. Children must be registered under the bookings of their parents/guardians.

Who do I contact if I have other questions?

We will contact all registered participants by phone and email before the event. You may highlight your concerns to our friendly facilitators before the event or on the day of the dinner.

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

There is off street parking available around the house. The closest train station is Telopea Station and the station is a 5-minute walk from the house. Alternatively, you can take the 545 from Parramatta Station. If you need help in getting to the venue, do let the facilitator know when they call you.
