WELCOME

The Australian-German Welfare Society (AGWS) is a not-for-profit member organisation dedicated to supporting community members with German cultural links in Australia.

Main objectives of the organisation are to:

  • help members of the German community with financial or material problems
  • provide opportunities for members to stay in touch with their 'old' culture, talk  in their mother tongue and take part in German traditions (eg. Mother's Day, Christmas)
  • support the elderly (nursing homes, friendly visiting service, computer courses)
  • promote German culture by offering book and film clubs  in German language
  • assist young families by offering a German playgroup  for pre-school children.

We encourage you to become a member of the AGWS, participate in the many activities and/or get involved as a volunteer. Donations and/or a legacy in your will  are welcome.
