Australia in 2019 is a culturally and linguistically diverse country. 

According to Census information from 2016, nearly one half (49per cent )of all Australians had either been born overseas or one or both parents had been born overseas.

Being aware of cultural differences is crucial for delivering services to and working with people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds.

Our training delivers understanding and ready-to-apply strategies and skills to help achieve better engagement.
