Community Sponsorship Side Event

Community Refugee Sponsorship Initiative logo
This year is shaping up to be an important time for the future of community sponsorship in Australia.  At the end of 2019, the Federal government committed to review the Community Support Program in response to the Shergold review’s recommendation for the introduction of an additional community refugee sponsorship scheme, inspired by the Canadian model.

The Community Refugee Sponsorship Initiative and theMy New Neighbour’ Campaign are planning a strong year of advocacy and engagement with policymakers and community groups. Come hear what they have planned and share your thoughts on advocacy opportunities as well as program features that would maximise the benefits and minimise risks to refugees and the communities that welcome them.

When: Thursday 13 February, 1.00pm – 2.15pm
Where: Gibson Room

Light snacks and refreshments will be served.
