Multicultural Australia Ltd

Also known as “MDA Ltd (formerly)”, “Multicultural Development Australia (formerly)” and “Multicultural Development Association Inc. (formerly)”, Multicultural Australia Ltd is a large-scale charity established in 1998. Their main activity is registered as social services primarily serving migrants, refugees or asylum seekers.

The principal activities of MA aim to create a welcoming, inclusive and economically strong community. We do this by welcoming refugees, people seeking asylum, international students and other new arrivals to Queensland with the goal of creating a fairer, more prosperous society for all Queenslanders. We help them to settle into their new lives, build connections in their communities, find work and study opportunities, learn new skills and feel at home. We also work with individuals, communities, business and government to help build a more welcoming Queensland through advocacy, cultural training and community events that bring people together, foster understanding and recognise the valuable contribution that new arrivals and migrants make to Queensland.
