Interested in hearing more about our New Arrival Refugee Program "Project Eden"?
Come along to our information night, where we will answer all your questions, you will hear from past participants and a staff member from CRSA (Community Refugee Sponsorship Australia).
This is a pioneering program, providing an opportunity for everyday Australians and our Jewish community to welcome new arrivals who have been identified by the United Nations as being in urgent need of resettlement. This program is about forming relationships, creating bonds and making change.
Volunteers will work in groups to support the relocation and settlement of either an individual or family of new arrival refugees. As a group, your responsibilities will include meeting the new arrivals at the airport, finding accommodation, assisting in registration to key services (medicare, bank account, centrelink, schools etc.) and immersing them in the local community. We are looking for volunteers who are able to make a one-year commitment.
The program will support 1,500 refugees over four years via help from community groups like Stand Up.
This is an obligation-free info night.
