    About This Service

    MIC offers a range of services for refugees and family stream migrants residing in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne to understand Australian life, integrate into a multicultural community and access services and opportunities that are available to all people in the community. MIC assists older people, younger people with disabilities and their carers who due to their diversity require assistance to access services so they can stay living at home. Diversity includes people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, and/or those who have dementia, are experiencing financial disadvantage, are homeless or at risk of homelessness, and people who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender or intersex. Moving to a new country can be challenging for everyone. Through casework and programs to individuals, families, children and young people, MIC is able to offer support to newly arrived refugee and family stream migrant communities. MIC offers youth specific settlement support to young people aged 12 - 25 years, through three youth settlement workers, covering the eastern region.
