We work for a more inclusive, culturally richer community where migrants, refugees, and diverse communities can reach their full potential.
Spectrum MRC is a one-stop shop for newly arrived and established migrants and refugees, with an organisational vision of “generations of diverse communities and individuals reaching their full potential in Australia”.
Our mission is to work with diverse communities and individuals to successfully settle in all aspects of community life by:
- Influencing society to build more inclusive communities;
- Delivering culturally appropriate and responsive settlement and family services;
- Empowering communities to identify and address settlement challenges; and
- Assisting ageing migrants and people with a disability to participate in life at home and in the community.
Currently, we operate across three office locations in Melbourne’s north-west (Preston, Sunshine and Dallas), providing a range of services tailored to meet the specific needs of refugees and migrants, including: settlement services, community development programs, youth services, parenting and family relationship programs, and aged care and disability services.
