Multicultural Community

Singleton Council welcomes all residents from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) backgrounds.

Singleton is experiencing growth in our CALD communities, as can be seen by looking at the change in the number of people who speak a language other than English from the 2006 to 2011 Census periods – although only 2.7% of Singleton residents spoke a language other than English at home in 2011, this represents a growth of 40.1% from the 2006 Census. At the 2011 census, the number of residents born overseas within the Singleton Local Government Area was 1,865 (or 8.2% of the total population), with 1217 from English speaking countries and 648 from Non-English speaking countries. In order to respond to this growing population and keep supporting the CALD community, Singleton Council promotes different activities and provides information throughout this website.
