Anti-Discrimination NSW

​Community consultation with newly arrived migrants

Published: 28 November 2017

The Anti-Discrimination Board attended a consultation with newly arrived senior male migrants at CORE Community Services in Fairfield in November.

The participants were mainly from Syria and Iraq. The Board took part in collaboration with the Department of Justice's Diversity Services program which addresses the needs of newly arrived migrants and refugees.

The aim of the consultation program is to advocate social justice, equal participation in decision-making, diversity and non-discrimination. It enables an exchange of information which leads to greater understanding of rights and responsibilities under Australian law.

CORE Community Services is a non-profit organisation which has been operating in the South West Sydney region in Fairfield for over 30 years. They provide servics for new arrivals during their first five years in Australia.
