Our Beginnings, Our Heritage
The Liverpool Migrant Resource Centre (MRC) was established in November 1979 following recommendations from the Galbally Report that the establishment of Migrant Resource Centres would be fundamental in ensuring the successful settlement of Non-English Speaking Background migrants in Australia.
The Liverpool MRC was set up to provide community development and welfare related services for people living with the Liverpool Local Government Area (LGA).
The Liverpool MRC continues to be primarily funded by the Federal Department of Social Services. The Centre also actively seeks and receives funding from Local and State government entities and other organisations to implement specific community projects and programs.
We are proud of our heritage and have continued to grow and involve since 1979.
