The Migrant Resource Centre Tasmania (MRC Tas) is a not-for-profit organisation that has been supporting people from migrant backgrounds to settle successfully in Tasmania since 1979. Their services include support for older people and specialised settlement services, including youth work, health and wellbeing services, migration support, and assistance with employment.
MRC Tas 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 Tas promotes the needs of multicultural communities through advocacy and working with mainstream services to support the delivery of responsive and culturally inclusive services.
