Why are we talking about Cultural Diversity?

It is important to think of our multicultural community when planning our services, facilities and initiatives. Council is committed to operating and delivering services that are consistent with and actively promote the NSW Multicultural Principles.

Council currently has a Cultural Diversity Policy and Framework to help us better connect with our community. We are now creating a Cultural Diversity Action Plan that will help guide our next steps and need your input!

We aim to:

  • Communicate well with our multicultural community
  • Provide inclusive and accessible places and spaces
  • Deliver culturally responsive services, programs and events
  • Reduce the barriers experienced by multicultural community members

We encourage everyone to fill out our survey, especially if you are from a culturally diverse background or can advocate for anyone from Shellharbour's culturally diverse community.
