For over twenty-five years, IWAA has been delivering Aged Care Support, Disability Support, Settlement Support, and Community Development Services across Queensland. In 2017, we responded to the demand from communities in Sydney for culturally-appropriate Aged Care and Disability Services in this region and officially launched our Sydney service in July 2017. The 8th of July, 2018 saw the official launch of our Melbourne office.

Moving forward, we will strive to:

Continue to identify and address community needs.
Ensure that continuous improvement remains at the cornerstone of all of our practices and service deliveries.
Effectively market and promote our services, so that both internal and external stakeholders have a clear understanding of our vision, goals, and practices.
Upskill and develop our human resources through the establishment of a performance-based culture that delivers through teamwork.

Ages Care Facilities:
Government-funded aged care services include in-home care (care in your home-HCP), Common Home care Support Programme (CHSP), residential care in aged care (nursing) homes, and short-term care such as respite care. If you’re not eligible, you can choose to access privately funded services, but you will need to pay the full cost yourself.

Settlement Program:
The Settlement Services Programme is funded by the Department of Social Services (DSS) to assist newly arrived refugees, humanitarian entrants and migrant by enhancing their knowledge and access to local services. We support new settlers to Australia in their first five years with specific needs, encouraging their independence and participation in the Australian community.

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides support to people with disability, their families and carers. It is jointly governed and funded by the Australian and participating states and territory governments. The NDIS also has a broader role in helping people with disability with their daily needs and making them independent.

Community Development:
The Community Action for a Multicultural Society (CAMS) program funds community-based organisations to support greater intercultural connectedness so that people from culturally diverse backgrounds can achieve their ambitions for social and economic participation. There are many paths to social connectedness, and the CAMS program collectively supports a wide range of activities that directly and indirectly benefit Queenslanders from culturally diverse backgrounds.

Sakina Refuge:
Sakina Inc was established in 2014 to provide safe shelter, empowerment and advocacy for Islamic CALD women affected by domestic violence. Along with preventative and early intervention programs to address domestic and family violence, IWAA provides crisis accommodation and social support for women and children under the Sakina Refuge Program at Islamic Women’s Association of Australia (IWAA).
