Australia has a long and proud tradition of resettling refugees and vulnerable people in humanitarian need. Refugees are seeking protection from conflict and trauma the likes of which are hard to imagine.
With the right support, refugees can make extraordinary contributions and become outstanding members of society. There are lots of ways you can help our newest arrivals build their lives in Australia.
Everyone who comes to Australia has a story to tell. Read and watch personal stories from refugees and community members who are supporting them.
Settlement Services provide early, tailored and intensive support to thousands of humanitarian entrants (including refugees) each year. This page includes information on this support the Government provides.
This page provides media with information and resources about the settlement process and details of Australia’s humanitarian intake from Syria and Iraq.
