MRC North delivers numerous settlement services and programs for newly arrived and settled humanitarian entrants, refugees and migrants across five key areas to support their effective, practical and compassionate settlement, integration, learning, and community understanding.
The five key areas are:
- Settlement Grants Program
Provides support from 1-5 years after their initial arrival in Tasmania.
- Immigration Advice and Application Assistance Service (IAAAS)
MRC North is the IAAAS for Northern Tasmania. MRC North supports separated families through the immigration application processes. This assists the reunification of family members living overseas to wish to join their settled families living in Northern Tasmania.
- Support Programs
MRC North provides additional services, resources, leadership and advocacy to enable our culturally and linguistically diverse families to better integrate, learn and develop, and contribute to the social, economic, and cultural growth of Tasmania.
- Community Training
MRC North recognises that effective and compassionate settlement can benefit from greater cultural awareness and understanding within the host communities. MRC North offers cultural awareness training, workshops and cultural information to local government, businesses, schools, community groups and individuals.
- Haig Community Space
MRC North owns and operates the Haig Community Space, a venue with a main hall, kitchen, meeting rooms, and outdoor children’s playground.
