Everyday Australians are supporting refugees through a groundbreaking new approach – you can too!

Do you want to help a refugee family in a practical and meaningful way?

Our programs

Our programs offer the opportunity for a local group of five or more adults to provide support to a refugee household settling in Australia. We screen and train groups prior to matching them with a refugee household that has been referred into one of our programs.

This program enables a local group of 5 or more people to welcome and support a refugee family from their first day in Australia. Learn more about the Community Refugee Integration and Settlement Pilot (CRISP).

This program enables a local group of 5 or more people to support refugee newcomers who are already living in Australia. Learn more about the Group Mentorship Program (GMP).

Check out our ‘Program comparison table’ to help you identify which of our programs might be right for you.

How do I get Involved?


You don’t need to have an established group to start taking the first steps towards joining one of our programs. Submit an individual expression of interest below to receive an invitation to our info session, updates about our programs and tips for forming a local group.


    If you’ve already formed a group and you’re ready to begin the application process please submit your group’s intention to apply. We recommend designating a ‘Group Coordinator’ to submit this form on behalf of the group.
