The program offers information or referral to appropriate government and community resources. It also offers assistance in completing forms for pensions, health care, accessible transport, rent assistance, Centrelink.

The Shamrock Quilters started in the 1980s with the intention of providing a support group for migrant Irish women, where they could meet on a weekly basis. From humble beginnings, the Quilters have grown, proudly exhibiting in Gaelic Park and St Patrick's Day Floats, just to name a few. Renowned for their exceptional craft, over the years, the Shamrock Quilters have presented many dignitaries from the Irish Government with gifts of their beautiful quilts.
New members and beginners welcome.
