Australian Multicultural Community ServicesFor many of our clients migration is a key influence on their life and most of them will have faced some - if not many - challenges in adjusting to life in Australia. For some elderly people this includes the ongoing effects of experiences before migration.
The Australian Multicultural Community Services (AMCS) is a not for profit organisation providing help at home and other support services to older people, people with disabilities and their carers in Melbourne and Greater Geelong.
AMCS provides home care packages, aged care information, assessment and referral services, respite for carers, social activities and companionship to people from diverse backgrounds. AMCS direct care workers and clients are matched so clients can receive care from someone with the same cultural background.
We also provide emergency relief for those suffering severe hardship. Some of our clients are asylum seekers who do not have the right to work or access government services. Other people who seek help are sole parent families, young people in low income households and migrants and refugees who are finding it difficult to cope because of language barriers, social isolation or unexpected bills. Food parcels and food vouchers alleviate immediate stress and hardship and restore dignity while other options are being explored to assist in the long term.
