Barriers & Exclusions: The support needs of newly arrived refugees with a disability

Barriers & Exclusions: The support needs of newly arrived refugees with a disability. A report on issues for newly arrived refugees living with a disability has been produced by Refugee Council of Australia, FECCA, National Ethnic Disability Alliance, and the Settlement Council of Australia. Based on consultations with clients and service providers, the report reveals that despite policy improvements which have enabled more refugees with disabilities to settle in Australia, many people still face serious barriers to successful resettlement. The report makes a number of recommendations to improve access to services.
