NMLL was formed in 1989 by local residents and representatives from local agencies.
With funding from Adult Community and Further Education (ACFE) their aim was to assist Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) residents of North Melbourne with English classes. By providing relevant and easy to understand information about services, they were also able to help residents connect with local agencies.
NMLL is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO), a Learn Local Organisation (LLO) and a registered Neighbourhood House and is continuously expanding its education, training and community development programs to empower the CALD communities of North Melbourne.
