The Hunter African Communities Council is an inclusive not-for-profit organisation supporting Australians of African decent in Newcastle and the Hunter region. Whilst HACC is not a service provider, we work closely with local organisations and government agencies in a variety of areas ranging from settlement, legal advice to personal development support.
Our goals are to advocate and work collaboratively with external agencies to create a safe and welcoming community for all Australians of African origin and their connections while encouraging integration in Australian society and embracing unique cultural diversity.
What We Do
We’re dedicated to providing reliable advice and support for Australians of African origin. With our strong sense of community and well-developed relationships, we advocate for and offer effective support to assist in successful integration and inclusion in Australian society while embracing our unique cultural heritage. We help families, groups, individuals and organisations learn more about African culture and its people. We help people of African origin find their place in Australian society, enjoy personal and professional success and celebrate diversity and multiculturalism. We focus on:
- Education and employment
- Capacity building
- Cross-cultural communication
- Housing, health and family support
- Integration and community events
- Cultural celebration
