This research project "Migration Snapshot of the Centre: Planning for Positive Future" is managed by the Multicultural Community Services of Central Australia (MCSCA), funded by the Northern Territory Government. This research has approval from the Central Australian Human Research Ethics Committee (Reference No. is CA-20-3817).

The main aim of this project is to collect up-to-date demographic information of migrants to establish a reliable dataset, and to understand the experience, aspirations and challenges faced by migrants in Central Australia. We expect this project will provide accurate information about migrants in Central Australia especially in the Alice Springs region, and inform the government’s decision making in providing better services for migrants in this region.

We invite you to participate in the questionnaire survey. Your response will remain private/confidential and anonymous. However, you do not have to participate in it if you don’t want to.

If you complete and submit the questionnaire, you have a chance to enter in a draw. There are ten (10) prizes to be won. Each prize is a $100 gift card.

We appreciate your participation in this project! Thank you!
