learning ▾

tutorials

To make learning more manageable, we've split our training into 4 parts, which cover asylum seeker legalities and experiences, and tips on how to be a good host.

guidebook

We've also provided all the tutorial information, plus more details, as a downloadable pdf. This also outlines our emergency and support procedures.

resources

There's already heaps of great resources out there an asylum seeker issues and experiences, so we've also provided a bunch of links to other brilliant websites and media.

tell us

Once you think you've got your head around all this, just fill in the form on the My Profile page, and we'll activate your account, making it searchable by our partner agencies.

connecting and meeting ▾

the wait

Depending on your guest preferences, profile, etc, you may be waiting for a while before you get a call. You can change your room's availability at any time, e.g. if you go on holiday.

contact

When one of our partner agencies finds the right person for you, they will contact you by phone or email. It is still up to you whether you accept their offer to meet.

meet

If you agree to meet, you will be able to get to know the staff of a particular agency, and get to know your guest a little. Let them know when and where is best for you!

discuss

Working out a suitable agreement may seem daunting, but don't worry, the agency will be ver helpful, and we've also provide some documents to help in your discussion.

hosting ▾

beginning

Once you've worked out an agreement with your agency and guest, you can start! If you need extra furniture, people like Refugee Ute Project can help.

middle

The way you live together is completely up to you, but if you have any questions or need help, your agency will be there to help you along the way.

end

Once your guest has found a permanent place to live, or the agreed time comes to an end, contact your agency to let them know.
