Welcome to Southland Multicultural Trust

Southland Multi-Nations was formed from a public meeting held in 1998 to help and support local immigrants community. 

In 1999 it became an incorporated society, Southland Multi-Nations Council Inc. In 2010 the organisation had a name change to Southland Multicultural Council Inc. so that all ethnic councils in New Zealand affiliated to the National Federation would be multicultural councils. As of April 2021 the name changes to Southland Multicultural Trust.

Southland Multicultural Trust is registered with the Charities Commission - number CC27119.

Our aim is to make Southland a safe and welcoming place for, migrants, ethnic people, former refugees and newcomers, where we can all learn to appreciate, enjoy and celebrate our cultural differences and diversity.
