  • The Culture Communication and Relationships at Work (CCRW) program and resources, used in the project made a unique and valuable contribution to enhancing the workplace participation and service delivery of people from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds. CCRW is an excellent tool, very well used by a highly competent team.
