Our Umbrella Multicultural Village Hub project is coming to an end on 30 June 2024.

We are so proud of its many achievements. It has connected residents of Belmont and Bayswater of 55+ to support services, fostered new friendships and networks and offered many wonderful local and regional excursions.

Highlights have included our strength and balance group's award from Injury Matters, our programs for Vietnamese and Mandarin-speaking community members in partnership with Co-Connect WA and our year-end karaoke boat trip on the Swan River.

We have been made aware of a petition to the House of Representatives in Canberra to continue funding for all 12 Village Hubs across Australia beyond June. If you are interested in signing, please click on the link below. It takes just a couple of minutes.

Do you know that more than more than 11,400 Ukrainian refugees are now living in Western Australia?

'Fleeing the War across Oceans', a joint photovoice project to develop a greater understanding of the experiences of Ukrainians since fleeing the war and arriving here, was launched last year.

We attended the unveiling of the project report at Curtin University last week and heard from participants who spoke movingly about their photos and their experiences as refugees.

Special guests included Zaneta Mascarenhas MP, Federal Member of Swan (pictured here addressing the audience).

The project was funded by Healthway and Lotterywest.

Learn more about the project here: ow.ly/Ufxq50RfVA2

📷 Pictured here are some of the participants and the beautiful Ukranian choir members who entertained us.

Fabulous!!

Our CEO Henrietta Podgorska was a guest at the 30th anniversary celebration of the Health Consumers' Council WA, a milestone event attended by Minister for Health and Mental Health Amber-Jade Sanderson last week.

The event showcased a detailed storyboard highlighting their significant achievements over the past 30 years and brought together many health professionals and advocates for health and mental health services.

There was also an informative panel session on the history and impact of their health advocacy work.

Our partnership with Health Consumers' Council WA, particularly as a partner in their current CaLD cancer resources project, aligns with Umbrella's ongoing commitment to health advocacy and community support.
