About Community Refugee Sponsorship Australia (CRSA)

CRSA an independent Australian charity leading civil society efforts to establish community sponsorship of refugees as a common practice throughout Australia, to benefit refugees and Australian communities alike. Established in mid 2021, CRSA builds on the work of its predecessor – the Community Refugee Sponsorship Initiative – which was an unincorporated joint project of a number of Australian charities and non-government organisations (NGOs) launched in 2018.
