Ms Wallis said AWECC worked to ensure equity in accessing services for those who might have language as a barrier.
“That’s why sessions like these are so important,” she said.
“We are so thankful that organisations like ECCV are committed to enabling rural and regional communities in Victoria as well as metropolitan Melbourne.”
