The Migrant Resource Centre (Southern Tasmania) Inc. (MRC) is a not-for-profit organisation that has been supporting people from migrant backgrounds to settle successfully in Southern Tasmania since 1979. Our services include support for older people and specialised settlement services, including youth work, health and wellbeing services, migration support, and assistance with employment.
MRC also provides support services for adults and children who have fled persecution, torture and war related trauma through the Phoenix Centre. These services include counselling, natural therapies and suicide prevention activities.
MRC promotes the needs of multicultural communities through advocacy and working with mainstream services to support the delivery of responsive and culturally inclusive services.
MRC has been appointed to provide the Commonwealth Government’s Humanitarian Settlement Program (HSP) across Tasmania, in collaboration with AMES Australia from the 30th of October 2017.
