The Rohingya Little Local

Posted 9 April 2019

The Rohingya Little Local, as part of Can Get Health in Canterbury, provided funding to the Rohingya community in Canterbury. The aim in providing this funding and program support was to enhance the capacity, confidence and skills of community members to improve social connection, health and wellbeing within the Rohingya community in Canterbury – their local environment. The community chose to use these funds to organise a futsal tournament and dinner. The event, held in January 2019, was attended by 172 people. Additionally, the community will also use the funds to organise a family picnic later in the year.

Can Get Health in Canterbury is a partnership between the University of New South Wales Centre for Primary Health Care and Equity (CPHCE), Sydney Local Health District - Health Equity and Research Development Unit (HERDU) and Central and Eastern Sydney PHN (CESPHN). Can Get Health in Canterbury aims to improve health and reduce inequities for marginalised culturally and linguistically diverse populations in the Canterbury area.
