Community Capacity Building

MiCare partners with a range of communities and agencies to build capacity

With a strong community development focus, MiCare works to strengthen and empower refugee communities to identify local issues and concerns, and to plan tailored community-owned responses.

Partnering with local councils, service providers, and community groups, MiCare’s Refugee and Asylum Seeker Strategic Partnership (RAP) supports a broad range of community-directed initiatives including:

  • Training and mentoring for community leaders and groups
  • Helping with governance, project planning, and resourcing of funds for group activities
  • Finding training and employment opportunities to develop job skills
  • Supporting the establishment of groups for women and children
  • Team-building programs and leadership development for youths
  • Planning and facilitating sports and recreation projects
  • Health and wellbeing workshops
  • Workshops on citizen rights and responsibilities
  • Social and cultural celebrations supporting multicultural life, and social inclusion

These programs are delivered in collaboration with key partners AMES Australia, WestJustice, Cohealth, VICSEG, and the Western Bulldogs Community Foundation.
