Forum Reports

The AMRC collaborates on input into service improvement and development through co-ordination and presentations to forums – to diverse networks at key national, state and local forums. We 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, migrants and asylum seekers to prevent and respond to possible domestic violence, and the needs and challenges for youth and women from new and establishing communities.
