Refugee Employment Support Program

An initiative from the NSW Government, the Refugee Employment Support Program (RESP) seeks to address the barriers faced by refugees and people seeking asylum. RESP assists up to 6,000 refugees and 1,000 asylum seekers to find long term, skilled employment opportunities. The initiative currently operates in Western Sydney and Illawarra.
