Cultural diversity

Waverley is home to a diverse community that includes people from all around the world, speaking different languages, and adhering to various beliefs. It is also a popular destination for local, national and international visitors.

Our commitment

Waverley Council is committed to building a welcoming, cohesive and resilient community where people of all cultural backgrounds can belong and participate in social, cultural, economic and civic life.

This stems from our strong affirmation that racism and discrimination have no place in Waverley.

Our commitment is demonstrated through our draft Cultural Diversity Strategy (on public exhibition until 6 July 2021) which was informed through community input and collaboration with local stakeholders, peak bodies, and representatives from local organisations, including Council’s Multicultural Advisory Committee.
