Metropolitan Multicultural networks
Metropolitan multicultural networks are gatherings of government, non-government agencies and community groups that share information, knowledge and resources so that they can better support their culturally and linguistically diverse (CaLD) communities.
The networks welcome new members and are an opportunity to engage with stakeholders, share information, discuss local issues, attend presentations and explore partnership opportunities.
Current metropolitan multicultural networks are:
- DHS Multicultural Consultative Forum
- East Metropolitian Multicultural Network
- Ethnic Disability Advocacy Centre (EDAC)—Interagency Network Meeting
- Humanitarian Entrants Interagency Network (HEIN)
- Multicultural Youth Advocacy Network Western Australia
- Northern Suburbs Multicultural Network (NOMUC)
- South East Multicultural Network (SEMN)
- CaLD South West Services Network
Combined Multicultural Networks Forum
The Office of Multicultural Interests (OMI) hosts two Combined Multicultural Networks Forum annually providing an opportunity for organisations delivering services and programs to CaLD communities to share information and discuss strategic issues
The forum brings together members of four metropolitan networks:
- Northern Suburbs Multicultural Network
- South East Multicultural Network
- East Metropolitan Multicultural Network
- CaLD South West Services Network.
