Supporting the settlement of refugees in our national capital

CRS is a not-for-profit organisation that introduces local volunteers to refugees and asylum seekers in Canberra. These volunteers act as good neighbours, to help the people they support to settle into life in Canberra and become as independent as possible. We understand that it can be difficult for people who are living with the uncertainty of a temporary visa, those who are denied the right to work, and newly arrived refugees learning about local systems.
