New and Emerging Communities Policy Advisory Committee
Provides a vehicle for our member organisations and those with a specific interest in issues concerning new and emerging communities to meet and discuss matters affecting them.
• People who come to Australia on a humanitarian visa
• Small and emerging groups who face social and economic disadvantages, who have little to no resources, such as Pacific Islanders,
• Issues relating to settlement
• Issues relating to refugees and asylum seekers
Although this committee is on a temporary hiatus, work in this area continues.

We are proud to recognise the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation, as the first Australians, cultural leaders and traditional custodians of the land from which we advocate for ethnic community groups. We pay our respects to their elders, past & present.
