‘I Speak Your Language’ telephone program assisting CALD communities
The Multicultural Communities Council Gold Coast is delivering I Speak Your Language which is a free state-wide telephone program, supported by the Queensland Government, that will connect socially isolated and vulnerable people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds with a volunteer who speaks their language.
Each week, participants will get a call and have a social chat to help them feel more connected with the community and their culture.
Volunteers can also direct people to reliable information about COVID-19.
If people are interested in connecting regularly with someone who speaks their language, call 1800 95 40 40.
