Toowoomba Refugee and
Migrant Services (TRAMS)

Providing refugees and migrants
assistance in become self-reliant

Providing support for Refugees & Migrants who are new to our region.

Our growing population is becoming increasingly diverse and adjusting to living in a new culture and society can be strange, complex and overwhelming. Our Toowoomba Refugee and Migrant Support (TRAMS) program provides refugees and migrants who are new to our region, with support to get settled into community life and smooth transition into Australian society.

Our TRAMS program provides refugees and migrants assistance to become self-reliant and to participate equitably in Australian society as soon as possible after their arrival in the Toowoomba community.

We can provide support through:

  • Casework support;
  • Information and referrals to other support services;
  • Weekly orientation and English class;
  • Short courses on key topics for successful settlement;
  • Skillsets for successful tenancies - Tenancy Institute course delivered in language;
  • Interpreting services;
  • Homework Club.

Leith Lethbridge Scholarship

The Leith Lethbridge Scholarship has been established to assist migrants newly arrived in the Toowoomba Region to access support to settle in Toowoomba. The award will provide up to $1,000 for eligible expenses, that will enable the beneficiary to successfully settle in Australia.

This Scholarship is presented in memory of Leith Lethbridge who was a volunteer English Teacher at TRAMS from Jan 2017 to late 2018. While Leith worked as a professional teacher for over 35 years, volunteering at TRAMS was a highlight for Leith. She was engaged and moved by the stories and lives of her students, and really wanted to help them establish their new lives in Australia. It is hoped that this scholarship can continue to support the successful settlement of those new to Australia.
