Refugee Week is an annual event which promotes positive images of refugees and celebrates the valuable contribution refugees make to Australian society. Our ultimate aim is to facilitate better understanding between different communities and encourage successful integration, enabling refugees to live in safety and to continue making a valuable contribution to Australia.

This year, Refugee Week is being celebrated from Sunday 18 June to Saturday 24 June 2017. The Refugee Council of Australia is encouraging organisations to celebrate a unified Refugee Week based around the theme ‘With courage let us all combine’. This Resource Kit has been designed to help community organisations, event organisers and teachers to prepare for Refugee Week.

The 2017 Resource Kit is available here.
