Every month DDA organises peer cafes - bringing people together to talk, connect and learn from each other.
Since April 2017 we've run 11 peer cafes with over 300 people from 20 different language groups across Sydney taking part.
The first group has been running now for 3 months. Over 45 people have attended. There are new groups popping up everywhere across Sydney and in different CALD communities.

$10K - Support For all
Each Peer Cafe, each group, new and old needs $10K each per year to thrive. Your support can keep that going for a year.
With groups across different CALD communities all over Sydney - the funds can go straight towards helping with venues, catering, language interpreters & support.
$12K - Training & Support
This means peer support training for up to 10 new peer leaders.
Different training programs are already developed. So the funds go towards venues, catering, language interpreters, support and paying the peer trainers.
CALD Peer Future Fund
It is exciting that there is so much
potential with our work.
We want to make sure we've got a bit of backing (phones/office space / computers/wages for supports)
so we can get on and do the work that
the community wants done.
Why don't you chip in now?
Spread the work use your influence, ask someone you know to support us..
