Stories of Welcome – Volume 5

Ideas for building a culture of welcome, Volume 5

Each year case studies from some of Welcoming Cities’ member councils are collected and compiled in this series. They offer examples of programs, policy shifts, new initiatives and strategic collaborations that highlight the excellent work happening in the country. As Welcoming Australia’s initiatives continue to grow, a broader range of stories have been included in the 2024 edition. Through Welcoming Clubs and Welcoming Universities, these stories showcase welcoming initiatives everywhere.  

Included again are the winners of the Welcoming Cities Awards for Change. These awards celebrate change made in communities by organisations, individuals and local councils. They acknowledge the progress that strengthens social cohesion with newly arrived and receiving communities to ensure everyone has a chance to participate, belong and thrive.
