Building disaster preparedness in Adelaide's culturally diverse communities

The grant will help train culturally and linguistically diverse volunteers to deliver emergency preparedness messages to new and existing migrants in their local community.

Profile

Adelaide has a large multicultural population and Red Cross experience suggests that when disaster strikes, new migrants or asylum seekers living in unfamiliar surroundings are often impacted the most. Funding will provide training to culturally and linguistically diverse community members so they are empowered with the skills and knowledge necessary to share disaster resilience information with new migrants in the local community.
