Humanitarian Settlement Program
Welcome to the Multicultural Communities Council Gold Coast (MCCGC) - Humanitarian Settlement Program
Empowering Communities, Transforming Lives
We are delighted to introduce the MCCGC Humanitarian Support Program in collaboration with our esteemed partner, Multicultural Australia.
Together, we provide vital assistance, guidance, and support to individuals and families who have recently arrived on the Gold Coast as humanitarian entrants. Our mission is to ensure a seamless and successful integration into the local community while continuing to encourage clients to have autonomy in their settlement journey within 18 months from arrival while working with their cultural and faith communities to enable connection and belonging.
Embracing Diversity, Building Bridges
MCCGC and Multicultural Australia share a common vision: to create inclusive and harmonious communities that celebrate diversity. With a collective experience of over 40 years, we have been at the forefront of delivering services and programs that cater to the unique needs of individuals from various cultural backgrounds.
The Humanitarian Support Program embodies our unwavering commitment to offering a holistic and compassionate approach to assist individuals and families who have been granted humanitarian visas. We aim to empower and equip them with the necessary tools and resources to rebuild their lives, foster connections, and create a sense of belonging within the vibrant Gold Coast community.
Our Comprehensive Support
Settlement Support: Our dedicated and multiculturally diverse team is here to guide and assist you throughout the settlement process. From finding suitable accommodation to accessing essential services, we provide practical and psychosocial support to ensure a smooth transition and a strong foundation for settlement.
Language and Cultural Assistance: We understand that language and cultural barriers can present challenges. Therefore, we offer language support services and culturally sensitive orientation programs, enabling you to adapt to your new environment, connect with others, and forge meaningful relationships within the community.
Education and Employment: We believe in the transformative power of education and employment. Our program offers tailored assistance in accessing education and vocational training opportunities, as well as support in finding suitable employment options. We strive to empower individuals with the skills and knowledge needed to thrive in their new home.
Health and Wellbeing: Your health and wellbeing are paramount to us. Through our program, we provide access to essential health services, physical and mental health support, and valuable information on community resources. We are committed to ensuring that you have the necessary support and resources to lead a healthy and fulfilling life.
Social and Community Engagement: Building social connections and fostering a sense of belonging is crucial for successful integration. We organize a wide range of social activities, cultural events, and workshops that celebrate diversity, encourage interaction, and promote a sense of unity within the Gold Coast community.
