The Refuge Australia Foundation

A new foundation has been created by the migrant resource centres across NSW.  The Refuge Australia Foundation has been established to provide leadership and foster dialogue around refugee issues. It is committed to meeting the needs of individuals and communities with refugee experiences with a view to increase the level of success for both on arrival settlement and longer term community integration.

The Foundation is governed by a Board of nine people with representatives drawn from a range of expertise areas relevant to the Foundation’s work and profile, including academia, the arts, multicultural affairs, foundations and trusts as well as key providers of settlement services.  An inaugural round of grants has been released. Please visit the Refuge Australia Foundation website http://www.refugeaustralia.org.au or the Philanthropy Australia Online Directory for submission applications.
