Drawing on the structure of the eco-map tool provided at Moodle you are to focus on creating a package of information that will help immigrants, refugees, and asylum seekers understand the welfare system in their new home.
As a social worker in education and training during field education you have been assigned a project to assist the settlement of immigrants, refugees, and asylum seekers who have arrived to your hometown with the goal of providing them an orientation to the Australian welfare system.
Informed by academic evidence about the specific needs of immigrants, refugees, and asylum seekers, you are to decide on which contemporary services and resources they may need to survive and those less essential but which enhance well-being and quality of life.
You are strongly encouraged to locate yourself in your own neighbourhood, town or city and identify the people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds who have been settled there most recently in order to make your learning authentic and useful for the future. Alternatively, you can look to the nearest neighbouring place that have hosted an influx of immigrants, refugees, and asylum seekers. If you decide to submit this assessment task with one to two others in the course you can focus on just one of your communities.
Please note: When planning your paper students are advised to carefully read the assessment criteria in conjunction with the assessment outline.
Word count: 1500 words.
If you do choose to submit this as a duo or trio, please include all names on the coversheet but only ONE student submits the assessment to moodle.
