FECCA is the peak, national body representing Australians from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. FECCA’s role is to advocate, lobby and promote issues on behalf of its constituency to government, business and the broader community.
FECCA strives to ensure that the needs and aspirations of Australians from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds are given proper recognition in public policy. We work to promote fairness and responsiveness to our constituency in the delivery and design of Government policies and programs. We promote multiculturalism as a core value that defines what it means to be Australian in the 21st century. www.fecca.org.au FECCA receives funding from the Department of Immigration and Citizenship ECCQ has been working directly with Queensland’s many communities since 1976. Every year, we help thousands of people from all backgrounds, across all of Queensland.
Our focus is supporting and advocating for the needs, interests and contributions of culturally and linguistically diverse communities in Queensland. Whether it’s working alongside culturally diverse communities through our support and education programs, or seeking equality around access to services, ECCQ is supporting Queensland’s growth into an inclusive and harmonious community – for everyone to enjoy and participate in. www.eccq.com.au The MCCGC was established in 1983 by a group of volunteers and representatives from various ethnic communities, clubs and associations in response to the growing number of migrants, new arrivals and refugees, especially those from non-English speaking backgrounds. It was identified that their needs were not adequately being met by the mainstream services that were primarily based in Brisbane. The MCCGC was incorporated in 1986 with a charter to ensure that people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds have equal access to appropriate services for their health and wellbeing. www.mccgc.com.au
