Catering to culturally diverse backgrounds
Randwick City is home to 104 different national or ethnic groups.
Our diversity policy encourages participation
Council has developed a Cultural Diversity Policy PDF, 50.63 KB which is designed to improve the participation of people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds in Local Government issues.
Our Multicultural Advisory Committee identifies and discusses issues affecting people from CALD backgrounds, and develops recommendations for Council's consideration.
Multicultural community events
Randwick City Council also coordinates a number of community events, and has trained a number of council staff to act as language aides.
In order to assist the needs of residents who have English as a second language, a number of Council staff have been trained as language aides to provide assistance to people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
Council also has access to the Telephone Interpreter Service (TIS).
Council maintains close links with Sydney Multicultural Community Services which assists newly arrived immigrants.
