The Multicultural Sport Club (MSC) quickly recognised the concern for healthy body and minds during the pandemic; especially for families from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) backgrounds who may become further isolated, have increased anxiety, and difficulty accessing services or support for their physical and mental health.
Working with the CALD communities allowed us to understand barriers to using zoom or accessing IT equipment during the pandemic; as an organisation, we concluded phone calls would be the best way to begin our community consultation to inform our engagement strategy during the pandemic.
In March 2020, MSC spent two-weeks conducting community consultations via phone. 400 families were contacted to participate in the discussion establishing:
The results concluded families were struggling to remain active in the home and felt disconnected which was Impacting their mental health. Particular concerns were raised for families with children under the age of 8 years old.
We created a formal final report to review the strategy. The report included statistics from Facebook and Instagram, consultation data, community feedback and follow up consultation data and direct deliverables tracking quantitative data.
Alongside the formal reporting stage, we engaged all stakeholders using Microsoft Teams to conduct a debrief and reflection for the future of KMSA and how to maintain our engagement sustainably to support the CALD community online and in the home.
