Visit MITA or in the community

The best way to get started is to visit MITA or a family in community with another Kindred member who can show you the ropes and support you through the process.

* Asylum Seekers living in the community are in community detention, or on a Bridging Visa.

Arranging your first visit

  • Read the visiting MITA / community resource
  • Ask a Kindred member for a briefing before your visit
  • Find a visiting buddy by putting a message on the Facebook page or email xvaqerqxvaqarff@tznvy.pbz (include dates you are available)

Debriefing

Debriefing after your visit is an important process. If your visiting buddy is not available for a chat please message someone in the Kindred Facebook group.

Regular visitors can join the Kindred MITA and Community visitors Facebook Group (best to decide this after your first visit). To join, please email xvaqerqxvaqarff@tznvy.pbz
