Success! NSW Government announces over $6 million assistance to migrants and temporary visa holders.

On 20 May 2020, MELS together with 19 other signatories wrote to the Premier of NSW requesting for welfare support to be provided to temporary visa holders. We’re so pleased to inform that today, Acting Minister for Multiculturalism Geoff Lee announced that over $6 million will be provided to “multicultural communities including migrants and temporary visa holders.”

The funds will be distributed to “specialist migrant and settlement NGOs, and multicultural community organisations who are providing basic support to vulnerable people including domestic violence victims.”
