Making renting simpler for our newest Victorians

In May 2017 we launched a new suite of online resources for culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities, to increase awareness of their rental rights.

First released in Dari, the animated videos have now been dubbed in Karen, Arabic and Swahili for the benefit of Victoria’s growing Iraqi, Syrian, Myanmar and Congolese communities, and are available on our website. The videos cover a range of important topics such as starting and ending a lease, bonds, repairs and condition reports.

To promote awareness of these new online tools, we worked with refugee and migrant settlement agency AMES Australia to share the videos with their clients.

This partnership - along with our presence at Refugee Week – helped us reach stakeholders and promote the translated videos to the right audiences. So far these videos have received over 900 views.
