The Huddle has been supporting local families and communities from refugee and migrant backgrounds for more than 10 years, empowering young people to learn, grow and belong through the power of sport.
Since COVID-19 restrictions have been enforced and we cannot continue to deliver our programs in person to young people in recreation centres, schools and our learning centre, we’ve responded quickly to ensure we can continue to maintain support for young people in the community who vitally need it.
We are now delivering all our education and career readiness programs online, including daily study support for young people aged 12 to 25 years. We are continuing to engage young people in our sport programs through active challenges featuring North Melbourne Football Club players. In addition, The Huddle is providing immediate help to families to access food, government financial support and access to the most up to date health information to protect families and communities.
Our social cohesion team are ensuring our families understand the rapid changes in legislation, by providing one-on-one support and translation. The Huddle has also delivered more than 100 holiday survival kits to local families containing workbooks and sports equipment.
But we need your help to continue our response to local families, including improved online support tools for families, more survival kits and to ensure we can fund our staff who deliver and rollout all of our programs.
Every little bit helps and we thank you for supporting us to support our families.
