HomeResourcesCALD ResourcesCultureReady Workshops
CultureReady workshops are free workshops aiming to equip disability service providers (NDIS registered or those intending to seek NDIS registration in the next 18 months) to provide culturally responsive services.

The online workshops are listed below. You can also request these workshops be delivered on-site for your organisation though the public calendar bookings. These workshops are provided by Settlement Services International.


 Engaging CALD Communities

Engaging CALD

A key reason why CALD communities do not access disability services at the same rate as the broader population is that they are often not aware of the services that exist or what their entitlements are under the NDIS. Service providers therefore cannot rely on people from culturally diverse backgrounds walking through the door, but instead need to have targeted strategies in order to engage and build relationships with CALD communities. This 2-hr online workshop will assist you in planning and implementing an engagement process for the communities you work with. Provided by Settlement Services International. FREE for NDIS providers.


Working with Language Services

working with language services

We live in a vibrant multicultural community, with one in four Australians born overseas.  The available evidence indicates that people from CALD backgrounds have rates of disability similar to the rest of the Australian population.

This 2-hour online workshop will assist you to work effectively with language services and build skills and confidence in knowing when and how to use interpreters. Provided by Settlement Services International.  FREE for NDIS providers.


 Recruiting and Retaining a Diverse Workforce

 To attract and retain CALD workers, organisations need to look beyond the traditional recruitment channels and consciously adopt targeted and flexible approaches as well as build supportive and inclusive workplaces. This 2-hour online workshop explores key areas to consider at the organisational, team and individual level when building a diverse and inclusive workforce. Provided by Settlement Services International. FREE for NDIS providers.
