Join a group or organisation in Bendigo:
Bendigo for Refugees – Early in 2014 a group of Bendigo people came together with a shared concern for how asylum seekers were being treated by Australian authorities. Many had never attended a meeting like this before, but felt they just couldn’t stand by and do nothing. From this initial gathering individuals formed numerous sub groups depending on their interests. The Pledge was one of these. Thanks to those who are part of Bendigo for Refugees, and special thanks to Dave Fagg for facilitating and supporting us in our various endeavours.
Bendigo Friends and Mentors – A volunteer, community based organisation providing social and material support, and mentoring to persons of refugee background at their request
