Who we are

Afri-Aus Care are a group of diverse professionals who provide support services to migrant youth from African and other CALD backgrounds, and their families, who are at risk or experiencing mental health issues, family and intergenerational conflict or are in the court system due to offences arising from these circumstances. Our volunteers are qualified case workers, social workers and psychologists, along with representatives from CALD communities who are able to engage with our clients in a culturally appropriate way.

OUR HISTORY

Following migration to Australia, Selba experienced emotional family violence and abuse, intergenerational conflict with her daughter, with minimal support from her community. Ms. Luka decided that others did not need to experience what she had gone through. She developed a vision to support others in similar situations. After presenting her vision to the people she trusted, in May 2015, the concept Afri-Aus Care Inc. was established to help such communities. Today there are measurable positive outcomes from her vision.
