“Social inclusion plays a large part in a person’s ability to adapt to life in Australia, which is so important to people who are waiting for their application for refugee status to be assessed.
It helps to build a sense of belonging and community connectedness, which has a range of benefits on mental health and wellbeing.
One of the particularly encouraging aspects of the Jamie’s Ministry of Food program was the level of cameraderie that was developed among the participants. It was great to see people from such diverse backgrounds come together to bond over their shared enjoyment of cooking.”
