  • To learn about the experiences of people escaping oppression and seeking asylum

The Refugee Council of Australia has chosen ‘Unity - The way forward’ as the theme for Refugee Week 2021.

The power of Unity. Bringing people together from all over the world. Recent events have shown us that we need to work together, now more than ever.

Let’s work together in 2021 during Refugee Week, to build a more cohesive, understanding and caring community.

Stronger. Safer. Healthier. Happier. Together.
