Capacity Building

Our capacity building and participation program works with multicultural community groups and organisation. It is designed to build the knowledge and skills of multicultural communities to fully participate and contribute to everyday life in Victoria.

Activities include:

  • Workshops with multicultural community groups to build their capacity, on topics such as the new Victorian Child Safety Standards, governance and strategic planning
  • Supporting cultural groups to apply for funding, organise community events and maintain traditional arts and cultural practices
  • Undertaking community consultations to better understand the needs of new and emerging communities

The Capacity Building and Participation Program is run in partnership with City of Greater Bendigo and Bendigo Community Health Services and is funded by Victorian State Government, Department of Premier and Cabinet.
