About the Project

The Metropolitan Migrant Resource Centre is a non-profit community organisation based in Mirrabooka which provides services across the metropolitan area. The MMRC receive funding from a range of state and commonwealth government agencies and the management committee is drawn from Centre members and the CaLD communities who we serve.

MMRC endeavors to bridge gaps that refugees and new migrants encounter during their settlement in Australia. With a dedicated team, from a variety of ethnic backgrounds, the MMRC supports clients as they face a variety of settlement challenges and work with them to create a sense of community and acceptance.

MMRC is part of a ‘Welcome Hub’ which has been established as a ‘one-stop-shop’ for settlement services at the Herb Graham Recreation Centre and is delivered through a partnership of five organisations led by the City of Stirling and includes ISHAR Multicultural Women’s Health Service, Association of Services to Torture and Trauma Survivors (ASeTTS) and Youth Futures.

MMRC’s Case Work and Youth services and the Welcome Hub are funded through the Commonwealth Department of Social Services under the Settlement Engagement and Transition Support program which is designed to equip and empower humanitarian entrants and other eligible clients and communities in their first five years in Australia to improve social participation, economic well-being, independence, personal well-being and community connectedness.

Support for Further Funding

In support of the MMRC, Vince has brought Assistant Minister for Community Safety, Jason Wood MP, and Minister for Social Services, Senator the Hon Anne Ruston, to tour the facilities in Mirrabooka and meet the hardworking staff and volunteers that make their programs possible.

The highlight of the visit with Minister Ruston was being able to hear the positive stories from participants of the MMRC's small business training and development programs.

Vince is working with the Minister and the MMRC to better support the work they do, and is confident that we will soon find a solution.
