Gymea Community Aid Supports Migrants in Gaining Their License

By News

GCAIS has supported migrants in gaining their P1 drivers license over the past few years in the areas of Sutherland Shire, Fairfield and Wollongong. In 2020, this program expanded to include Bankstown, Liverpool and Parramatta.
