Help with migration

Welcome to the Multicultural Council of Rangitikei/Whanganui

We aim to help newcomers and migrants “find their homes” amongst us. We’re here to support you in joining our vibrant, ethnically diverse community. We trust you will find what you need in this website: we intend to continue to evolve and adapt to meet the changing needs of newcomers and migrants, and your input is welcome.

If you need assistance and orientation while settling here – please make contact with us. If you wish to share an understanding of your own and others’ ethnic customs, language, religion, sports and culture – please join us. All are welcome regardless of age, nationality and language.

Our mission is to promote cultural awareness.

Our vision is to bring about cultural understanding and togetherness.

Our guiding principles – we support E Tu Whanau.
