We provide culturally appropriate care programs that are tailored for diverse groups such as, family carers, care workers, supervisors, managers and boards. Our training includes:
Short awareness-raising programs
Follow-up intensive practice programs.
The training is about specific requirements including:
Preventing or delaying onset of dementia
Online and in-person formats
Dementia and palliative care settings.
We provide "Train-the-Trainer" programs to leaders, managers and supervisors to assist them to lead and implement culturally appropriate care for clients from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds.
Cultural Audits & Charters
We assess the areas of strength to build on and areas where there are gaps to fill against the national industry standards. We then develop programs of change customized to each organisation's needs and resources.
We also use cultural audit data to develop an organisation's Multicultural Charter to support the drive to better serve the diverse clients in a sector with a diverse workforce.
Community Engagement & Advisory Services
AfCAS has strong links to CALD communities with members having a wide spectrum of ethnic, cultural, linguistic, religious and professional diversity characteristics. We apply our skills and focus on ensuring empowerment and enablement of our diverse communities and assist service providers to connect with the wide array of communities in their catchment areas.
Our advisory services have proved useful for research and practice for universities, service providers and CALD communities.
We are committed to:
Enhancing access to the right services to our diverse communities
Supporting providers to engage with all our diverse communities.
