Meet Mohsin - Community Connector

Hi, my name is Mohsin Virk and I am one of the City of Canning's newest Community Connectors.

I live in Wilson, but I have a great connection to the community in the Beeloo Ward and I'm keen to keep our community connected by providing networking and community event opportunities within around the area.

I'm keen on helping the community to connect by planning community events, like BBQ's or community gatherings sharing different cultural foods. I'm keen to help our local migrant families get to know each other so they can feel safe and welcome in our community.

I'm active on Facebook and am part of a number of clubs and community groups in the area including Probus, Lions and various sport and recreation groups.

I like to support the great work that our community groups and social service providers do in our area - and provide support where I can to neighbourhood houses, libraries, aged care services and volunteering organisations. I provide targeted education and awareness programs for clubs and groups.

My focus as a community connector will be to connect with people to increase social inclusion and reduce social isolation, and to help our newest Australians to build healthy community relationships through engagement, encouragement and social activity.
