Welcoming Intercultural Neighbours introduces the ‘Friendship Corner’

The Friendship corner is a new program designed and facilitated by Welcoming Intercultural Neighbours Inc. (WIN) volunteers with the aim to support new residents of Gladstone to find new friends and build supportive connections. The program offers information about the services and facilities available within the Gladstone Region too. The Friendship Corner encourages people from diverse backgrounds – including locals and new residents, to come together at the Gladstone Inclusion Centre for a wonderful morning tea where new friendships can be established.

Belen Sanchez, from Italy, arrived in the region in mid-January and attended the first Friendship Corner event last month. “I enjoyed coming to Friendship Corner because it is a safe space to meet people, talk and exchange ideas,” she said.

Friendship Corner is a free event held on the last Tuesday of each month from 10am to 11.30am at the Gladstone Inclusion Centre at 21 Off Street, Gladstone. All local and new residents are encouraged to attend.

Welcoming Intercultural Neighbours Inc. (WIN) is a not-for-profit organisation that supports the culturally diverse Central Queensland population. WIN has been established to assists new residents and their families integrate confidently into their communities. The organisation provides support, information sessions, education and training, orientation programs, referrals, resources development and provision, and events planning and promotion.
