The Community Northern Beaches’ Multicultural Service organised a Maths Clinic (tutorials) during the Summer school holidays 2019/20, for Tibetan students in grades 5, 6 and 7. The duration of the programme was two hours, two days per week, beginning in December 2019 and finishing on the 28th of January 2020.
Thanks to a grant from FACS with a top up from the Refugee Initiative Northern Beaches we were able to purchase this new car to replace very old one for our volunteer driving instructors and students that are part of our immigrant driving programme
Community Northern Beaches Volunteer, Kym Fowler visited some of the local businesses that support us to present our new window stickers that show our appreciation for their support and help promote our much needed services within the community:
On 4 June the annual Employment Expo ” Be Employed and Upskilled” was held at TAFE Northern Beaches campus, organised by Northern Beaches TAFE and Community Northern Beaches’ Multicultural Service.
Geoff Thomas and his team didn’t hesitate when approached by Kym from Community Northern Beaches recently for a contribution. They generously donated 10 x 1 hour dental treatments to assist our homeless and domestic violence clients who may be in urgent need of treatment on their teeth. We are incredibly grateful for this invaluable support so close to our hub, as many clients do not have the means to travel a distance for this kind of treatment, let alone the means to pay for it.
Maria Chidzey, Manager Multicultural Services has recently returned from India where she was extremely privileged to meet with His Holiness The Dalai Llama in a private audience. She also met with the Tibetan Government in Exile to discuss ways to improve the documentation process so that entry of Tibetans into Australia will be smoother. We are very proud of the work Maria, Dhondup and the team at Community Beaches do with the local community of people who arrived into Australia seeking asylum.
Karim + Nicol have kindly partnered with Community Northern Beaches, offering in-kind support to clients in need of expert advice. We are so thankful to Carrie and Nadia!
We dropped in to say hello to Condell Financial in Manly this week, a financial planning business who generously donated $1000 towards support for our clients over the Christmas period. We really appreciate people such as Sean and Andrew Condell, who see that help is needed locally where we live and work.
