The Australian Multicultural Community Services (AMCS) is a community based organisation addressing the diverse and changing needs of multicultural communities in Victoria.
We care, we support, we educate.
We identify what individuals need and find ways to deliver it. We provide Home Aged Care Packages for older people and people with disabilities from a diverse background, as well as other forms of home care.
We provide emergency relief for people with experiencing hardship and poverty, including those who experience food shortages.
We support clients the same way committed families support each other.
We provide respite for carers of the elderly and disabled, visiting programs and accredited adult learning.
We do many of the things that a committed extended family does for its elders.
Australia continues to be a new home for people who fled war, violence and suffering deprivation – but can’t always escape their effects, particularly in old age.
This is the part of the Victorian community that we are most experienced in supporting, with care and expertise built up over thirty years.
