My Club, My Community
If you have any questions about the My Club, My Community project and
how your club, organisation or community group can get involved, please contact the Clubs WA team.
‘My Club, My Community’ is a Clubs WA campaign that aims to provide a link between Western Australia’s community club sector and the state’s
Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CaLD) communities, to help diversify community club membership so it becomes a true representation of multicultural Australia. The central activity of clubs is to provide safe and enjoyable recreation facilities for their local communities.
The My Club, My Community campaign aims to raise awareness of community sport, social and cultural clubs and encourage CaLD community members to join their local club as a member or a volunteer – ultimately bringing together Western Australia’s vibrant multicultural communities.
My Club, My Community is a celebration of multicultural Australia focusing on inclusion, empowerment and community building. We hope this project will provide a vehicle for inclusion, drawing together people of all races, religions and cultures while also improving the physical and
mental health of all community members.

Office of Multicultural Interests
The Office of Multicultural Interests (OMI) is a division of the Department of Local Government and Communities. Its key role is to advise the Minister on the development of State Government policies and programs to achieve the full potential of multiculturalism.
OMI develops strategies that include everyone—culturally diverse communities, the wider community, business and industry groups, government and non-government agencies—to help develop a society that values and maximises the benefits of its cultural diversity. Its strategies assist organisations to develop policies, programs and services that are accessible and responsive to the needs of a diverse community.
OMI provides information, advice, funding, training and support to communities and community organisations to help build strong communities that maintain and share their diverse cultures and participate actively in all aspects of Western Australian life.
The Western Australian government proudly acknowledges and celebrates our cultural diversity as one of our State’s great strengths and actively plans for a future that captures its potential.
