Western Sydney MRC is a not for profit organisation working with newly arrived migrants, refugees, and diverse communities. Our approach to project, service and program design ensures our clients’ and community needs and wants are met. We champion our diverse community to be empowered, informed and connected.
A range of wrap-around programs supports our flagship casework services. These include family services, disability and mental health supports, youth activities, and a variety of information-based sessions including safe driving, employment, education and citizenship sessions delivered in adjacency with additional community development support through leadership programs, capacity building one-2-one support and on and offline event assistance. We run several Aged Care, Parenting, Playgroup related programs and provide emergency relief and specialised services to support clients with complex needs.
Based in the heart of Liverpool CBD, in South Western Sydney, we are at the centre of our community. Our accessible location allows clients and community to access services and programs readily and ensures our connection to our broader community is maintained. Liverpool is home to one of the highest rates of resettlement and migration in NSW.
We believe that everyone has the right to live a full, enriched life. We aim to promote the principles of access and equity for diverse communities and identify and promote particular disadvantaged groups’ needs to ensure that no-one is left behind. Underpinning our values are the core values for Human Rights. We all have our thoughts and ideas, should all be treated in the same way, and given the same opportunities, living in freedom and safety.
Our dedicated team of sector experts have been supporting clients along their journeys for decades. Our casework team understands the complex nature of settlement and has the individualised needs of each client at the forefront of their service delivery. Our staff ensure our clients are informed, and connected and offer advocacy, opportunities for growth and increased capacity alongside a shoulder and a hand, creating a safe space for individuals and communities to feel connected, seen and heard.
Our vision is for a socially inclusive Australia where diversity is celebrated. We aim to support individuals in reaching their full potential and living a successful life within their communities. We want all individuals who come to Australia to start a new life to feel respected and valued as Australian community members.
