Humanitarian entrants in New South Wales: A resource for New South Wales government agencies

Funded by the Community Relations Commission of NSW, this resource is designed to assist NSW government agencies to understand and meet the needs of people seeking asylum and people from refugee backgrounds settling in NSW.

It provides information on Australia’s Refugee and Humanitarian Program, settlement trends in NSW, typical experiences of people fleeing persecution and support services available to humanitarian entrants.

The resources also include a glossary, a directory of relevant support services in NSW and a chart detailing the entitlements of humanitarian entrants by visa subclass.
