Social Support

I Speak Your Language

I Speak Your Language is a volunteer based cultural support program delivering a free social support phone call to isolated Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) participants throughout Queensland. The project increases migrant and refugee volunteer participation and builds a sense of belonging while supporting primarily vulnerable isolated non English speakers. 

Participants based anywhere in Queensland receive a friendly phone call (20-30 min) once a week in their native language. Volunteers have to be based on the Gold Coast to make the calls from the Australian Red Cross call centre (Southport). 

Watch the SBS Story about I Speak Your Language (2018 finalist for the UNAA Media Awards) and meet some of our participants and volunteers!
