Volunteer with MDA in Rockhampton

For new arrivals, it’s exciting and daunting to come to a new country. There is the promise of peace and a bright future, and the trepidation of navigating a new culture. Am I going to be happy? Are people going to be warm and friendly? Will they understand what I’ve been through?

MDA’s work is based on helping new arrivals overcome the everyday challenges of settling into a new country and working with them to build their futures. We work with individuals and families to access resources and services, providing cultural orientation about Australian life, helping them build networks and engage with their local community.

We do all this with the aim of helping new refugees and migrants regain independence, restore hope and foster that priceless feeling that they belong in their new home. There are many opportunities to explore as a volunteer for MDA.

If you are interested in volunteering with MDA or know someone who is looking for a new challenge please give me a call
