Metropolitan Migrant Resource Centre

Connect, Move and Play Project

The Connect, Move and Play (CoMaP) program aims to engage people from refugee and migrant backgrounds in sport and physical activity as a means not only to improve health, but to enhance a sense of social connection and belonging. We have identified a need within CaLD communities in the City of Fremantle's who have been disconnected from the wider community and aren't participating in anything involving other communities groups so we plan on connecting communities together and making for a more inclusive wider community.

Wesley Link

The Wesley Link is a drop in centre with a commercial kitchen. At present this is open twice a week to provide free hospitality to those who require tea, coffee, toast, cheese and cup of soup etc. The project is attended by a wide range of people with different ages and ethnicity. It provides a quiet place for shelter and conversation as well as refreshment. The link is run entirely by volunteers and we are constantly seeking to increase volunteer numbers to enable increasing opening times. The grant sought is specifically to assist with the provision of food supplies and some of the running costs of the link.

The purpose of this project is to engage with the local Noongar Community to bring local language and culture into the program. This initiative will seek to embed Noongar seasonality, knowledge of flora and fauna, food and cycles into the weekly program, through language, song and rhyme. Through the guidance and support of the Noongar educators, we will create a series of language posters and songs for the BnB program. Language books and song books will be purchased for the program, and will be shared with the BnB and wider Hilton Harvest Community.
