Community Settlement

Ballina Region for Refugees is one of a network of community support groups throughout Australia affiliated with the Community Refugee Integration and Settlement Pilot (CRISP).  The Department of Home Affairs invites refugees to participate in CRISP and funds Community Refugee Sponsorship Australia (CRSA), a not-for-profit non-government national organisation to deliver the program.  CRISP enables groups of everyday Australians to welcome refugees into their local community and help them from ‘day one’ of their Australian journey.  If you and your friends are interested in finding out more information about CRISP and forming a community support group contact Community Refugee Sponsorship Australia.

Ballina Region for Refugees can provide support and connect you with other community support groups
