Focus on... Working with culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) adolescents

These included:

I really valued the opportunity to take part in the Webinar today. I am working in the refugee programme of Anglicare and I have worked with young asylum seekers nearly for 2 years. I have seen many promising outcomes in their lives which will definitely enable them in navigating in the " citizenship" that was discussed today. I believe these outcomes are attributed essentially on application of strengths based approach which was complemented by individual care, protection, confidence building, provision of range of support services, and rigorous follow up and working with varied stakeholders.
