Membership of the Darebin Ethnic Communities Council is open to all groups, clubs and organisations which serve the culturally and linguistically diverse communities in Darebin.

Although DECC does not have individual membership, interested people who support the aims and objectives of DECC are able to join our mailing list and attend our many activities and events.

Benefits of DECC Membership for Darebin’s ethnic communities

By working together on common issues, we are more effective in addressing the needs of specific groups and the culturally diverse population in Darebin as a whole.

Our goal is to make Darebin an even better place to live, with the social inclusion of all of us into all aspects of civic life, regardless of our background, culture, language or faith.
