Overview of the ECCV

The Ethnic Communities’ Council of Victoria (ECCV) is the Voice of Multicultural Victoria.

As the peak body for ethnic and multicultural organisations in Victoria, we are proud to have been the key advocate for culturally diverse communities in Victoria since 1974. For 40 years we have been the link between multicultural communities, government and the wider community.

We aim for a culturally diverse and harmonious society that is just, fair and inclusive where all people have the opportunity to participate in and contribute to, community life. We advocate for freedom, respect, equality and dignity for multicultural communities and strive with others, to build a strong, vibrant Victorian community.

Throughout the history of ECCV, issues surrounding older people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and aged care have remained a central pillar in ECCV’s work.
