Summary:

Policy and academic discussion has tended to consider refugee young people as a subgroup either of young people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds or of refugees in general.

The National Youth Affairs Research Scheme (NYARS) commissioned this study with the aim of providing an information base on which to build more effective strategies to address the complex needs of these young people and assisting their long-term independence within Australia.

The report brings together insights from consultation and interviews with young refugees, refugee families, policy-makers and service providers, and a range of information from previous research and official statistics to address the following key questions:

  • What characteristics define and differentiate the population of refugee young people in Australia?
  • What are the 'needs' of refugee young people and what kind of support do these young people require?
  • How well are federal policy and programs able to respond to the needs of refugee young people?
  • How can service response be improved and what examples of good practice are available?
