Valuing Cultures, Celebrating Diversity, Welcoming you
MCCGC's vision is of an inclusive community that values cultural diversity. We've been working in the Gold Coast region for over 40 years to ensure people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds have equal access to appropriate and inclusive services, a high quality of life and independence. We want everyone in our community to feel connected and we have programs that support people of all ages and backgrounds. Under our CÜRA brand we've expanded our services to further promote the health and well-being of all Australians.
These are not just numbers; they represent our accomplishments targeted at changing people's lives.
