More dedicated support for Macarthur’s diverse communities

Macarthur’s refugees, migrants and diverse communities will benefit from greater support with the NSW Government and the Western Sydney Migrant Resource Centre opening a new support location in the region.

The NSW Government and the Western Sydney Migrant Resource Centre officially opened its Campbelltown office this week, with Minister for Multiculturalism Steve Kamper also revealing the names of the two new community rooms.

“The NSW Government has a strong and proud history of working collaboratively with the Western Sydney Migrant Resource Centre,” Minister Kamper said.

“This partnership has been a vital relationship over many years, most recently it was instrumental in providing support services to the Liverpool region’s diverse communities during COVID-19.”

“The centre is a shining example of how local communities are best placed to find local solutions.”

The Western Sydney Migrant Resource Centre plays a crucial role in the settlement and integration of refugees and humanitarian migrants by offering vital resources, guidance and a strong support network to those who are rebuilding their lives.

MRC acting Chief Executive Officer Mohan Gunasekara said staff worked with diverse community members to provide settlement support and employment programs, youth programs and aged services, helping to address the multifaceted needs of refugees and migrants.

“Our expansion into Campbelltown is a direct recognition of the growing need for supports and services in the Macarthur region,” Mr Gunasekara said.

“I’m proud to be leading an organisation that has its heart in the community and works to empower some of our newest residents to settle and thrive.”

Before expanding to Campbelltown, the Centre provided community outreach and support to new, established and emerging communities in the Liverpool region.
