At the core of community refugee sponsorship models around the world is an understanding of Community Supporter Groups as independent, self-directed, self-governed and trusted knowledge holders in their own regions. Thus this Guidebook is not intended to be prescriptive, but to support CSGs to take a holistic approach to settlement planning for their matched refugee household.
This Settlement Guidebook has three parts:
- Part One: Introduction provides the broad policy guidelines for the Community Refugee Integration and Settlement Pilot (CRISP);
- Part Two: Settlement Planning is designed to assist Community Supporter Groups (CSGs) in the CRISP to develop a Settlement Plan for their matched refugee household, and to prepare for their arrival; and
- Part Three: What if something goes wrong? outlines the support CRSA provides to CSGs, and what CSGs should do in the case of something going wrong.
