Peel Multicultural Association is a member of PEEL SAYS NO TO VIOLENCE

As members of the Family & Domestic Violence – Peel Interagency Network, we pledge alliance to Peel Says No to Violence by:

Holding workshops and information sessions to educate, inform, support and refer families at risk of violence;

Partnering with local organisations and participating in local initiatives to keep families safe;

Standing up and speaking out to support gender equality and Australian values in the CaLD community.

Our History

Peel Multicultural Association is an incorporated association of volunteers who have been providing advocacy, information, support, advice, integration, guidance, referrals, visa assistance, job search and domestic violence awareness in the Peel Region since we first formed in 1991 when our group was called the Peel Filipino & Multicultural Association Inc.

The association changed to its current name in 2008 to reflect the rich multicultural community in the Peel region. 

Not only do we hold free and low-cost workshops for our members and the CaLD community (Culturally and Linguistically Diverse), we also foster community integration and promote cultural awareness through our events and multicultural performances.

Our management committee meets at least monthly to manage the association, its activities and events.
