Welcome to the Multicultural Communities Council of Illawarra - MCCI

The Multicultural Communities Council of Illawarra (MCCI) is a peak not-for-profit community based organisation which was established in 1975 as the Illawarra Ethnic Communities Council Inc. The MCCI represents the interests of people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds (CALD) and delivers a range of diversity services in aged care, youth development, community capacity building, stakeholder engagement, volunteering, and training.

Programs and services extend to Wollongong, Shellharbour, Kiama and Shoalhaven local government areas with expansion to deliver aged care expertise across NSW and the ACT.

The MCCI  aims to empower, support and advocate for the diverse communities and enrich the cultural experiences of living in a multicultural society.
