Abstract

Our responsibility to provide refugees with appropriate employment assistance stems from our responsibility to support their effective resettlement in Australia. Yet, at present, the provision of settlement services and employment assistance is not integrated and there is little evidence of explicit recognition of the needs of refugees in the framework for employment assistance. The experience of Given the Chance suggests we can do better in regard to resettlement, enabling refugees and their families to gain independence and to establish themselves in our communities.
