SOUTH WESTERN SYDNEY.
Overcoming the loneliness and isolation experienced by many older people in refugee communities is important to the fabric society.
With practical advice and access to a safe space, STARTTS has tailored this program to reach over 400 older people from refugee communities including Bosnian, Serbian, Armenian, Assyrian, Syrian, South Sudanese, Cambodian, Afghan and Tamil.
Meeting weekly, each group will be facilitated by a bi-cultural coordinator, trained and supervised by skilled counsellors. The program delivers respite from the pressures of family life and intergenerational conflict, enables friendships, well-being and healthy ageing.
