Wesley Centre - Asylum Seeker Welcome Place Opening
The Wesley Centre is about to open a new 'drop in' centre for asylum seekers and people who have Temporary Protection Visas. The Welcome Place will offer support to people living in this situation.
The Welcome Place will open two days a week from July 22, and will offer:
- Meaningful activities
- Opportunity for English conversation
- Assistance with tasks such as reading letters, filling out forms (not refugee applications), writing resumes (with those who have work rights), making phone calls etc.
- Information and referral to relevant services
- Friendship, company and support
- Dignity and respect
Flyers are attached, in English, Persian (Farsi) and Tamil. It is hoped that other translations will be offered soon.
