The new service, launching today, features community updates and a settlement guide, which offers expert advice and tips on daily Australian life that new migrants and emerging communities might find unfamiliar - from how to vote or lodge a tax return to guides on water and fire safety, healthcare and housing.  

 

SBS Director of Audio and Language Content, Mandi Wicks, said: “SBS Radio recently reviewed its language services in conjunction with the 2016 Census, which resulted in providing services to new and emerging communities. We’re thrilled to be expanding our services to include the Rohingya-speaking community in Australia.

 

“In May this year, we commenced services for the Karen, Kirundi, Tibetan, Hakha Chin and Mongolian communities. These new services have exceeded our expectations in terms of engagement on our website and listening to podcasts via the SBS website, SBS Radio app and other podcast platforms.”

 

All Rohingya content will be available digitally via on demand audio podcasts accessible via sbs.com.au/rohingya and the SBS Radio app. Feel at home wherever you are, download the free SBS Radio App available now at the iTunes App Storeand Google Play.
