Forums

Our presentations to forums focus on the needs and resources of the humanitarian program, the settlement outcomes and challenges encountered by the latest cohort of new arrivals, language requirements of current cohorts, collaboration on future events and activities, services and initiatives available to support refugees and asylum seekers to prevent and respond to possible domestic violence, and the needs and challenges for youth from new and establishing communities.
