Government Roadshow

Government Roadshow 

The Government Roadshow project is a part of Fostering Integration Grants Program funded by the Department of Home Affairs for the year 2019-2020.

The objectives of the Fostering Integration Grants are to more effectively facilitate the integration of migrants by:

  • encouraging the social and economic participation of migrants by developing skills and cultural competencies to integrate into Australian social, economic and civil life, and build community resilience
  • promoting and encouraging the uptake of Australian values and liberal democracy and amplifying the value of Australian citizenship
  • addressing issues within Australian communities that show potential for, or early signs of, low social integration, and
  • promoting a greater understanding and tolerance of racial, religious and cultural diversity.

The Fostering Integration Grants are expected to contribute to an integrated and cohesive multicultural Australia where migrants:

  • have capacity to communicate in English, the national language of Australia
  • actively participate in Australian society through work, school, sport or other community activities
  • embrace Australian values and abide by Australian laws
  • are gainfully employed
  • are resilient in times of crisis
  • have social networks that cross ethnic and religious groups
  • are welcomed and supported by the broader Australian community.

MCOT run nine information sessions in nine different cities/towns across Tasmania.
