The Learning Space

The SMRC in partnership with the Daughters of Jerusalem runs The Learning Space.

The program is held on Wednesday and Thursday between 10am and 2pm and is open to both men and women. Activities include Sewing, Conversational English for life skills, Basic Computers and Education and Employment support.

The Learning Space provides participants with a welcoming and safe space to develop their skills at their own pace. Participants meet new people, learn new skills and develop stronger links to the community. The program also builds participants’ capacity in a vibrant social environment.

This program is part of our Settlement program which aim to increase capacity, connection and participation in the community. We provide services to humanitarian entrants and other migrants on eligible visas during their first 5 years of settlement in Australia.

This program is funded through Department of Social Services through the Settlement Services Program.
