Our response to COVID-19
In response to Coronavirus (COVID-19), we have changed the way we operate for your safety and to fit with guidelines and regulations provided by the Australian Government.
We have re-opened all our offices for for face-to-face appointments, and continue to provide support by phone or zoom.
How can I prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19)?
Follow State government advice.
Good hand hygiene is the best defence against most viruses. You should:
- Wash your hands frequently with soap and water, before and after eating, and after going to the toilet. The handwashing process should last for 40 to 60 seconds every time.
- In addition, when you cough or sneeze:
- Sneeze into the inside of your elbows (not your hands) whilst leaning downwards.
- If the above is not possible, cover your sneeze or cough with a tissue, then dispose of the tissue and use alcohol-based hand sanitiser.
- And if unwell, avoid contact with others (stay more than 1.5 metres from people).
Other prevention measures:
- Disinfect door handles, taps and switches with alcohol wipes regularly.
- Use elbows or knuckles to press lift buttons, etc.
We have recommended to all Multicultural Futures employees that they follow the prevention measures above to prevent the spread of the virus. We will continue to watch and monitor the developments with the virus.
Thank you for your cooperation.

UnitingCare West is a proud partner of Multicultural Futures. Knowing that we can depend on the team to readily collaborate and walk alongside us to support people who need our combined skills and abilities in order to have their goals met is, quite simply, fantastic.
Access Housing and Multicultural Futures have a well-established, collaborative working relationship going back many years. We look forward to continuing and building upon this relationship into the years ahead as we partner to assist some of the community’s most vulnerable people.
We rely heavily on the support of agencies and programs such as Multicultural Futures in order to ensure best outcomes and recovery for people. The contribution of this flexible and culturally sensitive agency is a partnership that we will continue to build and foster.
With help from Multicultural Futures, we now stand on our own feet and by paying tax hopefully, we can give the opportunity for another family to make change for a more peaceful and prosperous life.
We highly valued Multicultural Futures’ contribution to developing our first Cultural Diversity Strategy. They brought a wealth of cultural insight and strong community connections with newly settled Cockburn community members which ensured a rich diversity of views were captured.
