Social worker Sarah Stevens said the six-day program was a joint effort between the THO, Red Cross and the Northern Suburbs Community Centre.

“We’ve had two really good days,” she said.

“We’ve been doing drumming, cooking and art.

“We have themes each day, like identity, resilience and cultural identity.”

Ms Stevens said children of a multicultural background were invited to join the free program.

“While there are some great things out there targeting the multicultural community, there are gaps,” Ms Stevens said.
