Multicultural Australia partners with Multicultural Communities Council Gold Coast to deliver client settlement services

Multicultural Australia will partner with Multicultural Communities Council Gold Coast (MCCGC) to deliver the Humanitarian Settlement Program (HSP) to clients in the Gold Coast region, starting 29 May 2023.

Christine Castley, Multicultural Australia CEO, has welcomed the partnership as the best way to deliver place-based and client-focused settlement services in the Gold Coast region.

“Multicultural Australia has a longstanding relationship with MCCGC and our partnership is a commitment to work with sector peers on delivering services, informed by local knowledge, that best meet the needs of our clients and communities.”

“We are committed to client-centered, culturally humble, and holistic practice; and will ensure that all clients are well-supported and cared for in this transition.”

Shane Klintworth, CEO of Multicultural Communities Council Gold Coast, sees the partnership as an opportunity to continue to provide quality care to clients in the region.

“We will continue the excellent service and support that Multicultural Australia has delivered to clients on the Gold Coast,” Shane said.

“Our aim continues to be to inform and empower clients to have agency in their settlement journey, whilst working with their cultural and faith communities to enable connection and belonging."

Ms Castley and Mr Klintworth highlighted that the self-determination of clients will remain paramount, with all clients being provided information on Settlement Engagement Transition Support (SETS) providers available to them.
