SWB has initiated major projects in the City of Hume and City of Moonee Valley with grants from the Victorian Government through the provision of a Victorian Community Support Grant from the Community Support Fund and the Scanlon Foundation. This work has focused on the provision of direct grants to young refugees and newly arrived migrants within these two municipalities.
In the City of Hume SWB is working with the local Council and the Centre for Multicultural Youth to identify and develop young leaders. These young leaders will organise a sporting event for young refugees and newly arrived migrants. This event will create links between local sporting clubs, State Sporting Associations and local young people.
In the City of Moonee Valley, SWB is working in partnership with the City of Moonee Valley to target specific groups of young refugees and newly arrived migrants and providing funds to assist in project development and implementation.
SWB is now working with the Municipal Association of Victoria to introduce these programs to 20 Councils around Victoria where there are significant newly arrived populations. But that’s not all. Along with this key purpose our site has several other functions.
