Cultural Bridging Facilitation

New Zealand, a multicultural country, values and respects diverse cultures. There is a growing need for Cultural Bridging support to address linguistic and cultural barriers when working with CALD Community members and individuals from various backgrounds. Beyond language, understanding cultural nuances is crucial to avoiding unproductive outcomes. Our CBFs play a vital role in ensuring clear communication between the agencies and community members as well as fostering positive, efficient, and beneficial outcomes. By working with CBF, agencies can save time in building trust and comprehending clients’ cultural backgrounds, leading to more effective interactions. Our qualified CBFs have successfully provided cultural competency support to organizations across New Zealand on site as well as online.
