This National Refugee Week, we celebrate the incredible strengths and significant contributions of refugees and people seeking asylum in our communities across Australia.
People who are refugees and people seeking asylum come from all walks of life. Each person’s journey to find a home where they can live safely, make connections, and achieve their goals is individual to them. Each person has their own hopes, interests, and talents – it’s these unique differences that we celebrate.
The last 18 months have been difficult for us all – it's vital that we continue to strengthen communities by extending a meaningful welcome, creating a sense of belonging, and providing opportunities to those that are new to our country to contribute, so we can support each other through challenging times.
