This consultation is now closed. Thanks to everyone who contributed to the survey. Your feedback will be considered as we develop our new Multicultural Partnerships Strategy to support our diverse community.

We're lucky to have such a diverse and vibrant multicultural community here in Yarra. We all have a role to play in making sure everyone feels included and valued, regardless of their background.

In the past, Council’s role has been outlined in our Multicultural Partnerships Plan. The Multicultural Partnerships Plan ensures we’re providing services that are as accessible and culturally relevant as possible.

The plan provides guidance for our staff when they work with our diverse community and supports the inclusion of culturally and linguistically diverse residents in Council processes.

As the current plan expires in 2023, we’re replacing the four-year Multicultural Partnerships Plan with a long-term guiding strategy defining Council’s role in how we support our diverse community.

This Multicultural Partnerships Strategy will be updated to align with each Council Plan’s objectives and values, without requiring a complete redevelopment every four years.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

In addition to the survey and in person sessions we also worked directly with service providers, community leaders and multicultural advocates to get their feedback.
