Cultural Sensitivity for Housing Sector Program
In the wake of the Syrian crisis, London welcomed more than 1,700 Syrian newcomers. One of the key challenges for these families was to find secure and affordable housing. In response to this need, LUSO provided customized training to housing staff, landlords, and building managers, about important cultural differences and how to best support Syrian newcomers residing in their buildings. This program has become a core funded program at LUSO Community Services, and we continue to work with housing representatives to address a wide array of issues.
Multicultural Outreach Program
This program offers workshops and presentations on race relations, racial bullying, cultural awareness and sensitivity training for youth, parents, professionals, and community groups. This program aims to improve the community’s ability to effectively address incidents of racial and cultural discrimination.
