The Vietnamese Community in Australia SA Chapter was established in 1978, as a result of the wave of boat people (refugees) who fled Vietnamese communism after the civil war ended. The organisation has grown significantly and now offers a range of culturally competent services to an increasingly culturally diverse client group: services target Vietnamese and non-Vietnamese people in need, with a focus on people from non-English speaking backgrounds, especially new arrival communities.
