Marlborough Migrant Centre
Promoting, positive race, relations & celebrating cultural diversity
The Marlborough Migrant Centre is a not-for-profit community based organisation supporting migrants and newcomers in the Marlborough region with their settlement process.
It also promotes positive race relations through community education, ensuring people of all ethnicities feel able to actively contribute to their adopted community.
The Marlborough Migrant Centre opened in 2007 as a result of the rapidly changing demographics of Marlborough and in response to the findings of the Marlborough social service report 'Settling in' which was published by the Ministry of Social Development Family & Community Services. This report identified a need for a centrally-located point of contact where migrants and newcomers to Marlborough would be able to access information, advice, advocacy and mechanisms that link people with the existing networks and agencies involved in supporting the resettlement process.
