Recreation and cultural engagement program

Bike safety workshop

Refugee Hub runs a Bike Safety Workshop for newly arrived youth from refugee backgrounds. Registered bike safety trainers deliver the workshop. Refugee Hub supplies a fully maintained bike to each participant following the workshop.

This program affords each participant an opportunity for independence, transport and recreation.

Community soccer Project

Refugee Hub helps youth access soccer in Newcastle. We collaborate with Jesmond Soccer Club and engage with representatives from other Newcastle soccer clubs. We offer assistance with the registration, costs and equipment (where possible). Grant funding and corporate support allows us to directly support youth through this program.

Beach Safety workshop

Refugee Hub supports clients to participate in a weekend Beach Safety Workshop run over three weeks at Cooks Hill Surf Life Saving Club. This is an annual initiative. The aim is to get families familiar and comfortable with the beach for recreation and to teach them how to safely enjoy it.
