Meet Refugees in your Community

A hand of friendship can go a long way to easing the sense of isolation felt by many refugees and people seeking asylum in our community.

1. The Welcome Dinner Project

The Welcome Dinner Project aims to build inclusive communities by connecting newly arrived people with established Australians over shared meals in local homes and community venues.

All are welcome to join by participating, hosting or training to become a facilitator, especially newly arrived people.

2. Join the Scattered People Choir

This group of musicians has been working for years with people new to Australia, sharing enjoyment of music and songs from different cultures.

The Scattered People provides a “safe space using music to allow humanities to intermingle, to soften traumas, to create solidarity and to nurture hopes.” It is comprised of asylum seekers, refugees and kindred spirited locals. All members of the community are welcome to join!


3. Welcome to Australia

Welcome to Australia exists to engage everyday Australians in the task of cultivating a culture of welcome in our nation.

The Australia we love is known for its diversity, compassion, generosity and commitment to giving all people a fair go.

We’d like to find many different ways that individuals, families, businesses and other organisations can work together to continue to develop these values in our communities, workplaces, schools and institutions.
