About us

Diversitat is a not-for-profit charitable community service organisation that supports culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities and the disadvantaged in the Barwon region.

Diversitat, also known as the Geelong Ethnic Communities Council, commenced operations in Geelong in 1976.

With a proud history in providing migrant services, our mission is to provide an innovative and high quality response to the changing needs of a culturally diverse community.

From humble beginnings as one office, Diversitat now operates from ten locations in the Barwon Region and offers a range of settlement services for new migrants, community programs, aged support services for older people from CALD backgrounds, services for young people, training and education, arts and events including Pako Festa, and a number of enterprises which you can visit and support.

Through offering these services, we hope to realise our vision: to empower individual and communities to reach their full potential.
