It is that time of year: the Refugee Council of Australia (RCOA's) annual consultations on Australia’s refugee and asylum policies are underway.
We are seeking feedback, suggestions and ideas from refugee communities, people seeking asylum, and individuals and organisations working with these communities. This is an important opportunity to share your views about Australia’s policies. Your feedback will inform RCOA’s ongoing research, submissions, reports and advocacy in Australia and internationally.
This year, we will be holding different consultations in Brisbane on different topics. This one is for those who are interested in health (including mental health) and settlement issues more broadly. There will be others on asylum and on changes to government-funded settlement services.
Who should come?
These consultations are designed generally for people who provide services to refugees and people seeking asylum and people from a refugee community or those seeking asylum.
To make sure that everyone feels that they can speak safely, these consultations are not open to:
- Representatives of the Department of Home Affairs and Department of Social Services, or
- People who are interested observers.
Read our key issues paper to see what we will be talking about - this session will focus on the issues under settlement.
