LOOKING BACK

What is your greatest achievement or highlight for the year?

I achieved a major milestone in my role as a bilingual caseworker at MECA by inviting Hon Ed Husic MP to my Educational sessions and raised the concerns of refugee family unity, job providers lack of services, Centrelink delays and misconduct, as well as overseas certificates and degree recognition.

Yousef Ammar

BILINGUAL CASEWORKER

Working with clients to promote wellbeing and engagement with the community. It is great to work with new arrivals and introduce them to the community. Also the Women’s sewing class has been a hit. We are working on starting a second class.

Raeanne Ali

BILINGUAL CASEWORKER

Seeing staff building resilience in communities, volunteers learning new skills, young people putting on their own events, clients gaining citizenship and hearing the laughter verberate the walls of MECA.

Amie Hope

MANAGER

Taking a group of young people to NSW Parliament for a tour and getting them to do role play & debate as government & opposition. I realised the importance of exposing and involving people in role playing so they can dream about the possibilities ahead.
