SydWest Multicultural Services
SydWest Multicultural Services provides and connects people from all cultures to services that meet individual, family and social needs to achieve the ultimate goal of creating self-sufficient, capable and valuable members of Australian society. We focus specifically on people most in need such as humanitarian entrants, refugees, people with disabilities, seniors, youth and children, during initial periods of settlement as well as in other critical times.
Linking People with Jobs
SydWest has recently teamed up with Marist Youth Care to provide practical warehouse training to migrants and new arrivals. The program gives students a Statement of Attainment as a pathway to further training and also links them with potential employers including IKEA.
Tailored Support for Men
The Settlement & Beyond division of SydWest offers ongoing and one-off support sessions and activities for refugee, humanitarian entrant and migrant men in Sydney’s greater west.

Supporting healthy living
