Following over 30 years of service to local culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities, we are excited to announce that we have changed our name from St George Migrant Resource Centre to Advance Diversity Services (ADS).
As the name implies, our mission is to help support cultural diversity within our community. The name change was necessary for a number of reasons. Our service delivery area has grown beyond the St George area into other parts of Sydney and our focus has grown beyond supporting newly arrived migrants. We now provide services and support to broader communities.
Importantly, the name change will allow us to broaden our funding base by attracting sponsorships and donations and bid for funding available from philanthropic sources. We also recently gained Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status which will allow us to achieve these endeavours.
ADS looks forward to providing another 30 years and more of services and supports to CALD communities across the South East Sydney region. Our current service delivery has not changed and all of the people we currently support will continue to receive established services. We look forward to also supporting new clients to our service.
Over the next few weeks we will be launching our new website (www.advancediversity.org.au). We will be officially launching the new name in November.
For now, we would like to share our new logo.
