Multicultural Disability Services

ECSC has been working in the disability sector for over 36 years supporting and advocating for the needs of CALD people with disability. We were one of the first organisations in NSW to support and advocate for the needs of CALD people with disabilities. We continue to promote and facilitate access and inclusion for people with a disability from CALD backgrounds, by working with individuals and families, communities and mainstream services.

Individuals and Families

We support people with a disability from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Communities (CALD) to receive appropriate services to achieve their life goals. We provide a range of services and supports for CALD people with disability, their families and carers including:

  • Connect people to relevant services.
  • Support people to access services and the coordination of supports.
  • Advocate for access to culturally and linguistically appropriate services.
  • Provide assistance to establish and/or run support groups.
  • Multicultural Carers Support Groups.
  • Bilingual workers and interpreters and translated  resources.
