Capacity Building Department
ADEC’s Community Service Department aims to build the capacity of ethnic communities through a range of knowledge based, rights based and value based Projects. The department also offers a language specific and culturally appropriate Social Support Program for people living with disability, including mental health concerns, people who are frail, and their carers.
