Melaleuca Refugee Centre & Trauma Survivor’s Service of the Northern Territory
Welcome to Melaleuca, a not-for-profit organisation whose sole purpose for existing is to provide dignifying person-centred humanitarian services to individuals and families from refugee and migrant backgrounds.
For over 21 years, our unique approach to settling clients into the NT has cultivated respect and awareness and inspired acts that support cultural diversity.
As one of Australia’s five nationally approved Humanitarian Settlement Providers, we are the first point of contact for refugees entering the “Top End” of Australia. A responsibility that we accept with honour knowing that our actions or inactions can create a lasting impact that transcends generations.
We are also one of the eight specialist rehabilitation agencies across Australia that work with survivors of torture and trauma, supporting individuals from refugee backgrounds.
Melaleuca brings together a range of culturally specific and holistic specialist services and programs that support our client’s physical, emotional and social needs, to generate lifelong positive outcomes for the people we serve.
Every day, we provide services to extraordinary people, whose journeys of courage, displacement and experiences of torture and trauma shape their resilience.
Every day, we say welcome and with each welcome a remarkable story unfolds, that strengthens lives and our communities. On behalf of the Board of Management and our colleagues at Melaleuca,
You are welcome.
