Migrant and Refugee Community of Practice

Supporting those working with migrants, refugees and people seeking asylum 

Do you support migrants, refugees or people seeking asylum? 

Are you looking to connect with others, share resources or build your knowledge and skills based on best practice?  

We are forming a new ‘Community of Practice’ (CoP). It will be made up of both members and employees across NSW who are actively supporting migrants and refugees. You don’t have to be an expert – that’s what the CoP is for – to bring together the specialist skills, knowledge and resources within the Society to support you in improving outcomes for the people we assist. 

The Community of Practice (CoP) aims to:  

  • connect members and employees, to support, collaborate and share expertise 
  • provide training and professional development to build the knowledge and skills of members and staff  
  • share knowledge, resources and strategies for supporting migrants and refugees based on best practice 
  • identify systemic issues and case studies to inform the Society’s advocacy and policy work. 

The CoP will meet online, for 1 to 1.5 hours every 2 months, starting in March 2024.  

You can find out more or submit your interest in getting involved. Scan the QR or use link above 

Note, depending on the level of interest we may have to cap numbers and seek representatives from each region through an EOI process. Priority will be given to members working directly with community members from this target group, particularly those working in isolation or new to this work.
