Winner: Premier’s Award

dina-award-acceptanceCo.As.It was recognised as an Outstanding Community Organisation under the Queensland Premier’s Cultural Diversity Awards 2014.

The Queensland Premier’s Cultural Diversity Awards honour the contributions and volunteering efforts from Queenslanders who support, promote and embrace our cultural diversity.

Since Co.As.It.’s inception in Brisbane in 1978, Co.As.It has expanded their support solely from the Italian community to incorporate other culturally and linguistically diverse communities.

Much of the organisation’s initiatives are the result of the efforts and work of a dedicated team of volunteers and staff who promote multiculturalism through the aged and community care support services.

Co.As.It. now offers a wide range of programs and services aimed at assisting families and individuals including crisis intervention, advocacy, community education, counselling, and support for frail elderly and people with disabilities and their carers.
