Proposed SAQ Welfare Services to Members

The SAQ constitution has a mandate for providing services to members. A separate Welfare Fund is available to fund such activities. Up to now, most of the services provided by SAQ are being confined to organising events such as talent shows, films, dramas, new year celebrations. The purpose of this paper is to explore the possibility of introducing new welfare services useful to the Sri Lankan community in Queensland.

The following welfare services are proposed:

  1. Systematic approach to cater for those who require assistance in preparing for job assistance in applications and interviews
  2. Systematic approach to cater for those new migrants who require material assistance
