Open Day 2108
The key take away for me, were people’s stories, their coming to Australia, their struggles and achievements.Those stories have brought back memories of my own personal journey and the beginnings in learning the English language at Migrant Resource Centre in Hobart. That was a really good open day!Danuta
We are a remarkable team who come together when the need arises.Sue
The day was a fantastic day. It showed the real essence of what SMRC is about. The Testimonies from members attending the function showed how deep is the connection between our clients and SMRC. The work that we do has helped many and was instrumental in shaping their lives . It was a good day for clients, for service providers, and for SMRC staff who are really proud of what they do.Alma
Powerful stories from people offers a moment to reflect, to think of their life journeys, relate to and reflect on the support we provide. It keeps me motivated and very happy to be part of the MRC journey.Tatjiana

About our programs
It was wonderful to see of how the homework club is conducted. Seeing a high number of participants being very excited and also having experienced tutors mentoring secondary school students, it is providing an opportunity for young refugees and young migrants to explore their full educational potential. I am excited to promote your program within the Refugee Minor Program.It was also a pleasure to observe clients to be mentored by Tina around career and educational pathways. The practical component I believe it was extremely beneficial to clients by building a set of skills when applying for a job. I will pass this contact to RMP Case Managers to refer clients requiring assistance with employment pathways .Maria DHHS – Refugee Minor Program

For this service I am greatly thankful.The ability of my mum to access the SMRC is very important to her and her family and very beneficial for my mum as it allows her to socialise with other people of her age and not only gives her some exercise she wouldn’t normally get but most importantly it gives her mental stimulation through the interaction with other people. It gives her something to look forward to every week.I think its an invaluable asset to the elderly community, without this activity she would have declined much more and earlier putting a heavier need for her to seek help from the public health system. It means everybody is benefitting equally as the elderly still greatly contribute to the community at large.Julian Pavlovic
the benefit of these groups [multicultural and the dementia classes] for my dad, are that he gets to experience a different environment which is safe and suited to his ability. The benefit for me is that it gives me a break from caring for him and I get time for myself.Dionsio Daughter
I just came back to Sweden now and will soon start to work at youth residential care for unaccompanied minors. Full of inspiration from my time at SMRC.Evelina
I am not exaggerating when I say that I have never before met a group of people as nice as you, so take that to your heart and keep up the good work! I hope to meet you again one day.
I will definitely recommend other students to do a placement with you. As well as talk to the department of social services at Umea university for future exchanges and research.
I have learned so much from observing and talking to you and I will take that with me to Sweden and on my future work as a social worker.
I just want to say another big thank you to all of you at SMRC, since I don’t really think that I have been able to express my gratitude fully. It’s been a great experience for me, that I forever will be thankful for. I am really inspired by you and your devotion to doing something great. Also, I can really see how you succeed.
