BETTER REFUGEE SPONSORSHIP IN AUSTRALIA
It’s time for a community-led solution for refugees that really works, is fair and accessible. We’re calling on the Australian Government to implement a truly community led sponsorship program which everyone can get involved in.
MY NEW NEIGHBOUR:
A people-powered campaign for better community refugee sponsorship
What is community refugee sponsorship?
Community refugee sponsorship allows a group of people in Australia to put their hand up and ‘sponsor’ a refugee to come live here.
Community groups and organisations like church groups, sporting clubs, schools and other community groups can choose to ‘sponsor’ a refugee, and maybe a whole family, to rebuild their lives in Australia.
Community sponsors help with the costs of bringing the person to Australia and commit to providing various forms of practical support during their first year in the country.
