In the light of the Australian Federal Government’s decision to accept an additional 12,000 refugees from the Syrian crisis, a number of people have indicated to me that they would be in a position to offer a temporary home for some of those in need. I’ve so far identified a couple of organisations who are working to link refugees with hosts; I’ll add others to this page as I become aware of them.
- Enough Room are a new Sydney based organisation
- Australian Homestay Network normally provide accommodation for overseas students, but are planning on using their expertise to assist refugees
- UnitingCare are in conversation with the Federal Government about how they might assist – no specific details yet, but watch this space.
If you’d like to know more, contact me, or contact one of the organisations above directly!
