Culture and religion information sheets

The Office of Multicultural Interests (OMI) consults with key WA religious leaders to produce information sheets on culture and religion.
The sheets are designed to assist service providers in government and not-for-profit community sectors so that they can improve the development and delivery of their services.

There is an information sheet on each of the following religions: Baha’i, Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and Sikhism. The sheets give brief details of the history of each religion in WA as well as information on the background and origins of the religions and an outline of their key beliefs.

OMI’s culture and religion information sheets offer information on cultural aspects of these seven religions, on topics including ‘Food, drink and fasting’, ‘Body language and behaviour’, ‘Medical’ and ‘Counselling and interviews’, among others.
