Community Action for a Multicultural Society (CAMS) program
The Queensland Government is committed to promoting an inclusive, harmonious and united Queensland.
The Community Action for a Multicultural Society (CAMS) program funds community-based organisations to support greater intercultural connectedness so that people from culturally diverse backgrounds can achieve their ambitions for social and economic participation.
There are many paths to social connectedness, and the CAMS program collectively supports a wide range of activities that directly and indirectly benefit Queenslanders from culturally diverse backgrounds. These activities include approaches that:
- build connectedness of individuals
- work with community leaders to develop and implement strategies to address known issues
- promote cross-cultural capability and understanding to build welcome and intercultural connection in the wider community.
The Department of Local Government, Racing and Multicultural Affairs undertook a review of the CAMS program between August and December 2019 to determine how well the program continues to support the Government’s strategic priorities and whether any changes or improvements are required.

In view of the current public health concerns due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Department has postponed further work on the CAMS review.
