The Little Things Project


The Little Things

Cross-cultural communication for personal care work in aged care

The Little Things is a project to develop cross-cultural language training resources. The resources are for Personal Care Assistants (PCAs) from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds working in aged care. The purpose of the training materials is to improve the quality of care offered by PCAs and the career prospects of the PCAs. The project is supported by the Victorian Government and runs from June 2018 to June 2020.

The Little Things project is led by the Farnham Street Neighbourhood Learning Centre in partnership with Meaningful Ageing Australia.
