Lessons Learned reports from the Welcome Here project
The Lessons Learned report was completed as part of the Welcome Here project (Phase I). This phase of the project focused on building collaborations between family resource centres and settlement agencies.
The report offers insights into how family resource centres across Canada have successfully adapted their programs to reflect diversity in their communities.
More Lessons Learned was created as part of the Welcome Here project (Phase II).
This report consolidates information about how to create more welcoming family resource programs for new immigrant families and documents the barriers and challenges to meeting the needs of newcomer families. It also offers suggestions for addressing the identified barriers and challenges. Information for this report was collected using an FRP Canada member survey, and focus groups.
