EXPERIENCE ARMENIAN COMMUNITY WELFARE CENTRE

Faith Hope and Love Above All Else

About: Welcome
ACWC Cover.jpeg

OUR STORY

The Armenian Community Welfare Centre Limited (ACWC) was officially established in 1982, under the auspice of the Diocese of the Armenian Apostolic Church of Australia and New Zealand. 

Our initial aim of the Centre was to assist newly arrived migrants with their settlement needs. Since then the Centre has expanded its programs and activities to better meet the changing needs of the Australian Community, particularly the Austral-Armenian Community.

We provide a range of services that cater to various demographic groups in the community.  

Some of our services are funded by the Department of Health under the Commonwealth Home Support Programme, Multicultural NSW and the Department of Justice and Communities NSW.
