JewishCare provides a range of therapeutic and practical services for older members of the Russian community. The program employs Russian speaking staff who can provide case management, advocacy and education and liaison with other community organisations with the aim of helping migrants from the Former Soviet Union to more fully access the resources and activities of their area and therefore reducing their feelings of isolation.
The Factory is a drop in centre for people who typically came to Australia from The Former Soviet Union at a relatively late age, live in the Redfern/Waterloo area and have generally not managed to acquire a workable level of English language. They also tend to be of very limited financial means.
The Factory which operates 3 days a week at 67 Raglan St Redfern, involves one worker who is proficient in Russian and English and a volunteer who takes the attendees through a range of activities that include current affairs discussions and outings.
