Migrant and Refugee Settlement Services (MARSS)

MARSS's mission is to be a leader in provision of settlement and related services for migrants, refugees and humanitarian entrants in the ACT and region, in a caring, supporting and enabling way.

MARSS Australia Inc. was established in 1980 as the Migrant Resource Centre and incorporated in 1983. All programs at MARSS are funded through Commonwealth and Local Grants. Since its inception, MARSS has been managed by a Board of Management comprising of elected nominees from Canberra’s ethnic communities. MARSS has grown to become a vibrant service-oriented organisation, incorporating programs for migrants of all ages to assist with language, welfare, employment, access and equity for people from cultural and linguistic backgrounds.
