    Families

    Policy Platform: All South Australians have the right to live in safe homes and communities. People from culturally diverse backgrounds are particularly disadvantaged because of cultural beliefs and influences, poor understanding of the law and their rights, and isolation due to language barriers.

    Policy Platform:

    • Increase the number of social workers and support staff from new communities through special programs in schools and in the community, and through training.
    • Information in relevant languages and provided in culturally appropriate communication channels to migrant groups
    • Multicultural communities have a right to all dialogue and debates that impact legislation, including the debate on same sex marriage. The subject can be taboo in CALD communities due to cultural values and beliefs. CALD communities must be included in these debates through culturally appropriate communication and participation processes.
