Training to bridge emergency response for CALD communities
The grant will be used to train 15-20 volunteers in emergency readiness and response and establish a Disaster Assistance and Response Team (DART).
Islamic Relief Australia has identified a gap between Culturally And Linguistically Diverse (CALD) community awareness and emergency response during natural disasters. Under local State Emergency Service (SES) team guidance, IRA will train 15-20 volunteers in emergency readiness and response and establish a Disaster Assistance and Response team. It will also raise awareness and knowledge among diverse communities through translated information.
