About Us

South East Community Links is the culmination of five decades of history and commitment, working across the south east of Melbourne to achieve better social and economic outcomes for people in our community.

We were established in late 2015 following the merge of Springvale Community Aid & Advice Bureau (SCAAB), Dandenong Community Advisory Bureau (DCAB) and Southern Ethnic Advocacy and Advisory Council (SEAAC). Our new Strategic Plan, ‘Triple Our Impact’, was launched in 2021 and details five goals which drive our organisation.

As a universal service provider, we deliver a wide range of programs and assistance to meet the needs of people in our community:

  • emergency relief
  • casework
  • housing support
  • youth and family support services
  • financial counselling
  • resettlement services for refugees and asylum seekers
  • financial capability assistance
  • volunteer programs

We work with individuals, communities, policy makers and business to ensure every person counts and every system is fair.
