Modern Australia and multicultural Australia are the same thing. Labor’s Fair Go Action Plan delivers for all Australians.
We need real change – because more of the same isn’t good enough.
Modern multicultural Australia is best served by a government that will invest in education right through from early childhood education, to school, university, and TAFE.
Modern multicultural Australia is best supported by a government that will invest in health, ease pressure on family budgets, provide more affordable housing and support small business.
A Shorten Labor Government has a plan to deliver for all Australians and our Fair Go Action Plan is focussed on jobs, health, education, housing and small business. Read the full plan here.
Labor’s plan for multicultural Australia includes:
- An investment of $100 million to expand access to culturally appropriate aged care facilities throughout Australia, ensuring that older Australians from multicultural backgrounds are in an environment where the language, food and surroundings are familiar to them.
- A fairer and cheaper Long Stay Parent Visa, so that Australian families from migrant and multicultural backgrounds can reunite with their loved ones and so that grandparents can spend quality time with their grandchildren.
- An investment of an additional $15 million in the Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP) to increase the number of service locations, expand access for more migrants and improve training quality.
- An investment in programs to strengthen communities, share stories and support grassroots community groups.
- Establishing citizenship commissioners to work with communities to promote social cohesion and multiculturalism.
- Drive the economic, social, and cultural integration of newly arrived migrants and members of culturally and linguistically diverse communities.
- Assist Australians to preserve, enhance and share their cultures, languages and group identities.
- Improve the responsiveness of all institutions to meet the needs of a diverse population.
If you want a fair go for all Australians – vote Labor.
