Congratulations to the AW Ethnic Communities Council for bringing Professor Andrew Markus to LaTrobe University in Wodonga to present a summary of the findings from the 2017 Scanlon Foundation Social Cohesion Survey.

This report presents the findings of the tenth Survey which builds on the knowledge gained through the earlier  surveys conducted since 2007, providing for the first time in Australia a series of detailed surveys on social cohesion and population issues. It includes discussion of public opinion on social cohesion, trust, immigration, asylum seekers, and ethnic, cultural and religious diversity.

Community organisations working in this field can apply now for Scanlon Foundation funding through Border Trust’s 2018 Community Grant Round. Details here
