In 2003, the Migrant Resource Centre of SA assisted the Filipino community in deciding how they will manage the Filipino Settlement Program which was then managed by the MRCSA. The Filipino Advisory Committee formed a working committee who drafted the community survey. A community consultation was conducted to explain the community survey. The MRCSA engaged an independent person to tally the results of the survey where majority indicated that they would like a new coordinating council formed to manage the Filipino Settlement Program. The establishment of FSCCSA was mandated by the results of the survey.
