Africa Media Australia has launched Afro helpline as a free and confidential information service designed to help new arrivals from African countries adapt to the realities of life in Australia.
Staffed by volunteers and supported by leading community organisations, it provides families and individuals with critical information, guidance and connections on their journey to Australian residency.
Afro Helplineprovides clear, impartial and up-to-date information to help migrants from African communities navigate the complexities of life in Australia – from housing and employment, to schools, healthcare, family welfare, youth issues, racism and religious freedoms. No issue is too complex, no challenge too sensitive, for Afro Helpline’s support.
“Afro Helpline is an invaluable resource for African migrants, especially in the crucial early months after they arrive in Australia.” stated Fred Alale, Chairperson, African Music and Cultural Festival, and former President, Nigerian Society of Victoria
Afro helpline offers a telephone and online information service that aims to provide people from African backgrounds with culturally appropriate advice, assistance and contacts to support their settlement and integration into Australian society.
The number for Afro Helpline is 1300 319 019
