Refugee week: Celebrate 10 YEARS of refugees with a disability resettling in Australia
This Refugee Week we celebrate ten years since Australia allowed refugees living with a disability to arrive in Australia through the resettlement program. Join some of the people and services who helped make this change possible, and those who have made Australia home as a result.
Adama Kamara (Deputy CEO, Refugee Council of Australia); Prof Mary Crock (author of The Legal Protection of Refugees with Disabilities: Forgotten and Invisible?); refugee speakers; an address from UNHCR, and many more.
Hosted by the NSW Refugee Health Service, National Ethnic Disability Alliance, Refugee Council of Australia, Settlement Services International, and The University of Sydney.
