Event Details

  • Do you want to know how you, your family and friends can help the Parramatta region become a more welcoming community?
  • Have you wondered about ways you might be able to show newcomers they are a welcome addition to our community?
  • Do you want to hear of small and big actions you can take to support refugees and other migrants who have settled in our community?

The City of Parramatta is committed to being a welcoming and inclusive city that values our cultural diversity, and the City became a Refugee Welcome Zone in 2016. We see the community as a key partner in helping to welcome newcomers of all backgrounds as valued community members, and support their participation in the social, civic, and economic life of our community.

The City will be running short community information sessions for members of our community who want to know more about how they can contribute and get involved.

The session held on 11 September 2017 will cover:

  • A basic overview of our migrant populations in Parramatta and their migrant experiences.
  • Simple ways you can help refugees and other migrants feel more welcome.
  • Differing levels of action you can take to help support the settlement experience of our migrants.
