Who we are

WACMRO is an agency of the Catholic Archdiocese of Perth that aspires to support migrants and refugees in a manner that upholds their dignity to enable them to feel a sense of welcome and belonging in the parish and broader community.


We welcome partnerships and will partner with any organisation that supports our guiding principles. If your organisation, parish or school would like to form a partnership arrangement with us, please reach out to the team.

We can’t help everyone,
but everyone can help someone
