Welcome to Australia


The Welcome Health Project is partnering with Welcome to Australia.

Welcome to Australia exists to engage everyday Australians in the task of cultivating a culture of welcome in our nation. They believe that the most effective way of creating social and policy change in this area is to facilitate opportunities for authentic relationships to be built in which people of differing backgrounds share their stories. In other words – that knowing someone personally and hearing their story, hopes and dreams will have more impact on a person’s views on these contentious issues than any policy, economic or political debate.

Welcome To Australia would like to create a loud, public voice of positivity which changes the public conversation about refugees and asylum seekers by virtue of its volume and values.
