Metro Assist (formerly Metro Migrant Resource Centre) provides a range of community services including migrant settlement, family support and early intervention, emergency relief, tenancy services, employment support and community development. Our service area includes Inner West, Canterbury- Bankstown, Marrickville and Strathfield Local Government Areas.
The organisation was initially established as the Canterbury Bankstown Migrant Resource Centre in 1986 to assist new migrants and refugees settling in the Canterbury and Bankstown local government areas. With an expansion in the organisation’s footprint to include the Inner West, the name was changed in 2008 to Metro Migrant Resource Centre. A broadening of services beyond migrant settlement saw a further name change to Metro Assist in 2010.
From our origins as a Migrant Resource Centre, we have specialist knowledge of the experiences and needs of culturally and linguistically diverse communities. We hold a deep passion and commitment to advocacy and to promote diversity and social inclusion.
