ARCC and Migrant Action Trust (MAT) partnership initially started in 2013 when ARCC shared the same office space with MAT at the Community Action Centre located at 766 Sandringham Road Extension, Mt Roskill. Being in one location, it enabled the two organisations to be more familiar with each other’s roles in the ethnic community and what each organisation is trying to accomplish. It became evident to them that they could serve the ethnic community better by working together. Since the initial partnership, ARCC and MAT have collaborated on a number of successful initiatives.
