Africause is committed to supporting African Australian community to develop and facilitate opportunities in a wide different sort of aspects, in this case supporting businesses to work together, thrive and contribute to the local and African community. Africause has been an integral part of the community, supporting business to connect through a variety of networking events and workshops, by assisting with community access, by being involved in community functions, and by helping connect your business to local and state governments.

The current training sessions include community leaders, members and organisations who are registered or looking for registration as NDIS providers.
This training has 5 sessions programmed via zoom, where members meet every week to participate in culturally appropriate training sessions that allow them to understand concepts and regulations regarding NDIS scheme.
