Active Refugee and Migrant Integration in Australia Pty Ltd

Also known as “ARMIA”, Active Refugee and Migrant Integration in Australia Pty Ltd is a small-scale charity established in 2014. Their main activity is registered as economic, social and community development primarily serving people from a culturally and linguistically diverse background.

ARMIA's Vision: An inclusive Australia where people from refugee and migrant backgrounds are supported as integrated and contributing citizens. Our Mission: To empower New Australians i.e. those refugees and migrants who no longer are part of the Australian Governments settlement program to be part of the workforce or business community to proudly take their place as acknowledged and valued members of Australian society. To empower people with disability and their family so that they can live a normal life. To empower all disadvantaged mainstream and indigenous persons, which is another way to promote rapid integration and multicultural interactions. This is done as a Multicultural Family Support Hub in SE Queensland, through a Holistic Approach. We are symbolically a Tree welcoming any birds with any needs at any time i.e. a drop-in centre and bridge between New Australians, the Government and other services providers. Who We Serve/d: Those individuals who do not integrate into Australian society, even with the 5-year Australian government assistance program, which often leads to social isolation. After many years in Australia, these individuals at all ages still find it difficult to undertake the simplest of tasks that most Australians take for granted. Education, jobs, cultural differences, English language, mental health, aged care, physical health and social interaction all become barriers and can lead to extreme social isolation (especially for people with disability, elderly and single mothers), domestic violence, drug and alcohol abuse, restricted work opportunities and welfare dependence, youth and child homelessness, youth exposure to radicalism and fundamentalism. ARMIA aims to shift fit and skilled individuals from welfare dependency, empowering them to recover their dignity and self-confidence, (re)join studies, the workforce and/or entrepreneurship, to finally become healthy, productive and proud Australian citizens. We also empower people with disability and their family so that they can live a normal life. We empower all disadvantaged mainstream and indigenous persons, which is another practical way to promote rapid integration and multicultural interactions. Strategies 2018-2023: 1. Established ARMIA as a welcoming drop-in centre (24/7) to attempt to assist with any problem from the CALD, mainstream and indigenous community. 2. Worked within a framework around the following three Central Pillars: - Affordable housing - Community Empowerment - Employment and Entrepreneurship 3. Utilise five interconnected programs, each with multiple activities, within the three Central Pillars. Each group activity to enable secondary group therapy and capacity building: - Education - Business initiatives - Health and Wellbeing - Community Engagement - Life Skills and Vocational Training
