Can you help “Our Stories” get off the ground? Vote today!

SCARF needs your vote! Our project called “Our Stories” has been shortlisted for funding by the NSW government. If successful, Our Stories will combine visual art, photography, podcasts, film and live conversation to tell the inspirational stories of former refugees living in the Illawarra – but we need your vote to make this happen.

SCARF relies on funding through projects like this one so that we can continue to offer support and services to refugee entrants and their families. If you live in the Wollongong electorate your vote could make the difference in getting this project off the ground.
