If you’re someone from a culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) background, or you’re caring for someone with a CALD background, CCNB offers services designed specifically for you that take this diversity into account.

We provide information and linkage to services that cater to specific diets, activities, languages or spiritual needs, whatever the cultural, linguistic or spiritual background.

CCNB caters to people from different cultures, religions and lifestyle backgrounds.

How we support cultural and linguistic diversity

We employ a diverse staff, many with second languages.

All our services are designed to specifically meet our customer’s needs, especially those from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.

Our models of support recognise the unique and diverse needs that individuals and families have, that may often not be effectively met due to language and cultural barriers and preferences.

Our services are individualised and holistic, and offer optimum variety of choice, to support, respect and celebrate this diversity.

We’re expert at finding and connecting you to the best services that meet your unique needs.

How we support Australia’s first peoples

We recognise the unique experiences of Australia’s First Peoples, including the trauma, dispossession and the ongoing disadvantage they experience in relation to health, socioeconomic status and other well being factors.

We also recognise the inherent strength and resilience of Aboriginal peoples, and the knowledge and wisdom they carry, that is so fundamental to the well being of this country and the people in it.

 

CCNB employes a First Australians Health and Wellbeing Service which provides an entry point into the service system for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, their families and carers.
