Australian Greek Welfare Society

The Australian Greek Welfare Society (AGWS) was established in Melbourne in 1972 to lobby for the rights of Greek migrants and their children, especially in the areas of education, health, welfare and language services. In the 1970s it opened one of the first centres to provide culturally appropriate child care for the children of migrants. Its continuing purpose is to provide service, advocacy, policy development and research to support the Australian-Greek community. The child care centre is still in operation and welcomes children of all cultural backgrounds.
