Centacare Multicultural Services

Centacare Multicultural Services (CMS) provides free support for eligible individuals, families and migrant communities in Cairns and the surrounding regions.  The Service specialises in regional settlement and has delivered settlement services across the far north for over decade.  

CMS is proud to have assisted thousands of people from a multicultural background to receive support to help them participate in all aspects of life and improve their health and wellbeing.  This includes settlement case management, community information, education and training and advocacy services. We support newly arrived individuals and families, refugees and humanitarian entrants and new and emerging multicultural communities and groups.

Our services are facilitated through a number of programs. These Include:

  • Settlement Services 
  • Community Development
  • Business Development
  • Community Information, Education & Training
  • Volunteer Program

All services have access to interpreters.
An interpreter can be requested at the time of making an appointment or at any time during the session.
