The Italian Australian Welfare Association (Granite Belt) Inc. is a community based non-profit organisation run by a voluntary management committee comprising people from diverse cultural backgrounds.

The Agency was formed in 1993, following consultations with the wider non-English speaking community in the Stanthorpe Shire, which identified significant linguistic and cultural barriers to access.

In 1995, the Agency received funding from the Home and Community Care (HACC) program for employment of an Ethnic liaison Officer. This is a bridging position aimed at overcoming cultural and/or linguistic barriers to access to mainstream health services.
