We are seeking interested RAR members/groups to join the Resettlement Subcommittee.
The Subcommittee reports monthly to the RAR National Committee and has the following brief:
To work with member groups involved and interested in (increased) resettlement of Refugees and Asylum Seekers to:
- Build local links in priority/design areas to inform settlement and advocacy

The Subcommittee will work with representatives from member groups in designated resettlement priority areas and other organisations with ongoing involvement, along with individuals with skill/ experience. Members of the RSC will also participate in relevant sector strategy conversations.
We have a broad scope of work encompassing regional settlement and community sponsorship issues, a watching brief on the Community Refugee Sponsorship Initiative and proposed regional pilots and work to identify best practice approaches.
