Refugee Week 2022

In recognition of Refugee Week, Bayside Council has partnered with Advance Diversity Services and Sydney Multicultural Community Services to present several information sessions on the support services available to refugees and their communities in Bayside.

“I am very proud that Bayside is a Refugee Welcome Zone as declared by the Refugee Council of Australia,” Mayor Dr Christina Curry said.

“This means we welcome refugees to our community, uphold their rights under the UN Refugee Convention, demonstrate compassion for refugees, and are committed to enhancing the cultural and religious diversity across Bayside.”

People arriving from overseas to build new lives face many challenges as they settle, establish themselves and contribute to community life.

These information sessions will provide the information they need.
