About The Multicultural Communities Council of Illawarra
 The Multicultural Communities Council of Illawarra a non-profit organisation that supports people and communities from culturally and linguistically (CALD) diverse backgrounds in the Wollongong, Shellharbour, Kiama and Shoalhaven Local Government Areas.

  • respect and provide for different cultures, languages and religions, with English recognised as our common language
  • provide the greatest possible access to government programs and services
  • promote and maximise the value of our diverse cultural and linguistic heritage to develop NSW.
