Interview: Alice Fang

Rev Keith Garner speaks with Multicultural Support Worker, Alice Fang about the challenges faced by migrants when settling in Australia, including language barrier, isolation and a lack of support. She shares how the Wesley Family Centre in The Hills offers women a chance to rebuild their lives.

"Being a new arrival in Australia, it’s really important to connect them with our local services, which they don’t have a knowledge of what kind of support they can get from the local community services or other organisations, " said Alice.

"That reward for me is that when I see the ladies being confident again, the ladies having the hope to start their new life in Australia or the ladies being empowered to start their career or go back to school."
