What bodes the future?

RAR National has been talking to both the Coalition and the Opposition about the approach to resettling refugees in country Australia. We have been told that the future  Humanitarian Program will increase, will involve settlement in rural and regional areas and will likely to include a larger proportion of single women with children. We know that the settlement needs of women can differ to those of men.  Here is a link to some recent research.

How You Can Help


“One of the great strengths of RAR is to bring together people of like minds but from often very different backgrounds, and to give them the opportunity to work for refugees in whatever way suits them.” – Anne Coombs, RAR Founder
