About Us

MARSS Australia Inc. (Migrant and Refugee Settlement Services) is a community organisation that works to settle migrants, refugees and asylum seekers in the ACT region. This includes assisting clients with accommodation, emergency relief, health and welfare, employment, language, education, social belonging and cultural awareness. The values MARSS adheres to are those of accountability, communication, confidentiality, integrity, professionalism, respect and sensitivity.

MARSS’ passionate team of staff work closely with members of our community to deliver a broad range of programs, including casework, advocacy and referral, emergency relief, community development and capacity building, youth services, education and employment support, counselling, domestic violence services, driving lessons, advocacy, and much more.

How we will use the funds

MARSS provides a comprehensive range of settlement services and programs for migrants, refugees, asylum seekers and humanitarian entrants. These include general settlement support, English language and literacy training, vocational education and training, emergency relief and financial literacy training, and employment services.

This funding would be used towards MARSS' Lets Get Digital and Emergency Relief Programs. The Lets Get Digital program connects Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) people with volunteers who assist with learning new computer skills for everyday life, jobs and school. The Emergency Relief Program, provides immediate and sensitive assistance to all vulnerable people in times of financial crisis and helps them reach financial self-reliance through education and referrals.

More than ever, these two programs have become important for continuing to improve the lives of CALD people in the ACT and NSW given the significant impact of COVID-19 over the last two years.
