Established in 2019, we are an organization driven by progressive ideas, intergenerational solidarity and multicultural harmony. Dealing with the social challenges of today requires the courage to bring community and government together with experts, social workers and volunteers. Northern Beaches Multicultural Communities emerged out of a pursuit to inspire and support the community, particularly the vulnerable, and a desire for actions to speak louder than words. Bringing together government backers, private donors and community volunteers, we offer services to members of our locality, not limited to mental health services and language learning. We believe that no one should feel isolated by age, cultural or ethnic diversity when these could be fostered to enrich both individuals and wider communities.
