Multicultural Communities Team

Established in 1956, the Multicultural Communities Team (formerly the Ecumenical Migration Centre, or EMC) has been at the forefront of the migrant rights movement in Australia for 60 years.

Our recent booklet Opening Doors celebrates the pioneering work of the Multicultural Communities Team over the past 60 years. 

Today the team continues to work with new and emerging communities to increase the communities' potential and support their members.

The Multicultural Communities Team has:

  • expert workers from a variety of fields
  • strong relationships with communities in the area
  • the ability to respond promptly to community needs
  • innovative programs
  • one-on-one/individual support and group work
  • community engagement work
  • research and advocacy based on program results.
