The Alliance of Philippine Community Organisations Inc. (APCO) officers and members represented the Auburn Small Community Organisation Network Inc. (ASCON) at the presentation ceremony for ClubGRANTS-funded organisations held at DOOLEYS Lidcombe Catholic Club on the 17th of August 2016.

Auburn City has a higher unemployment rate (8.6%) than the greater Sydney area (5.7%). Barriers to employment for new arrivals (refugees, migrants and asylum seekers) include lack of knowledge on how to apply for jobs in Australia, difficulty in recognition of overseas skills, limited or lack of Australian work experience and low self-esteem. The ‘Connect to Work Project’ aims to address these barriers.

ASCON has over 40 organisational members aimed to promote multicultural harmony through the establishment of a network of representatives from volunteer-run, not-for-profit community organisations from small and emerging communities in Western Sydney.  ASCON achieves this through advocacy and collaboration on projects that affect small and emerging communities.

Incidentally, the Alliance of Philippine Community Organisations Inc (APCO) and Kapit-bahayan Cooperative Ltd (KCL) are very active founding members of ASCON. Ruben and Dr Cen Amores APCO’s immediate past president and founding president, respectively are also the founding and current Chair of ASCON for Ruben while Cen is the current Public Officer.
