After over a year in our Footscray HQ, we have some incredibly exciting to news to share with you! On the 1st of May, we officially moved from our Footscray base to a bigger and better space in Sunshine. You will now be able to find us at 21A Sun Crescent, Sunshine, which is just a short walk from the town centre and Sunshine train station.
Relocating to Sunshine allows for the growth of our services, providing a stronger central presence and connection from Melbourne’s North to South-West. This is the first step in our plan to widen our service reach for refugee and migrant children and youth, ensuring they have access to RMCC’s unique and holistic programs. Alice Wojcik, our Founder and CEO, comments that
“Our new RMCC headquarters will bring new and exciting prospects for refugee & migrant children in Melbourne’s West. We look forward bringing those to life for the kids.”
This move represents an exciting change for the RMCC family so we are keen to share the space with you all. We are open from 10am-5pm every weekday, and we would love it if lots of you popped by to say hello.
As the team continues to settle into the new office, we would like to say a big thank you to all the supporters of our working bee who gave up their weekend to give our new office some much needed TLC. We really appreciate your help. Also as the work took longer than expected, we would like to recognise friends and family of RMCC that continued to pitch in for the next two weeks. We honestly can’t thank you enough as your help ensured that we were able to open the office on time.
Likewise, without generous furniture donations from Next Wave, Amrick and Alan via Pozible, our office would simple look empty! All your donations ensure that our programs and volunteers have a nice space to work in.
Due to the sheer scale of the new space, we are still after a few extra items of furniture, so if you know anyone who would be willing to give some bookshelves a loving home, we would love to hear from you! Please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
