Multicultural Community Services of Central Australia
SETTLEMENT ENGAGEMENT AND TRANSITION SUPPORT (SET) PROGRAM
- We provide confidential casework services, referral and information sessions on a range of topics to newly-arrived migrants. We aim to encourage and nurture self-reliance and confidence, promoting community access and participation in mainstream society and services.
- This program aims to help newly-arrived migrants get to know their local community and to access the range of services on offer. The SET Program is funded by the Department of Social Services.
MULTICULTURAL COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT
- This program is designed to assist Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) communities participate more fully in the cultural life of their new country and community. We can assist the formation and incorporation of social and cultural organisations for ethnic communities.
- This program also enables Multicultural Community Services of Central Australia (MCSCA) to organise community events to promote and celebrate multiculturalism, for example, the annual Harmony Day celebrations and End of Year Get Together, thus raising community awareness of the richness and diversity of our Central Australian ethnic cultures. This service is funded by the Northern Territory Department of Chief Minister through Office of Multicultural Affairs (OMA)
This long-running and much-loved multicultural playgroup, facilitated by MCSCA, enables parents and children to meet weekly in a convenient and comfortable CBD location.

Susu Mama meets every Monday and Friday at the Alice Springs Community Youth Centre from 9.30 to 11.30 am. The group is funded by Department of Social Services through Anglicare NT.
