Life and Faith: New Arrivals

We hear from innovative volunteers who are trying to make Australia a more welcoming place.

Asylum seeker policy is perpetually controversial at the political level. On the ground, though, there are all kinds of initiatives underway to help asylum seekers settle in when they do arrive. Simon Smart and Natasha Moore speak to Brad Chilcott about his organisation Welcome to Australia and how it’s grown over the last four years since it started – and hear from a few other volunteers involved in welcoming and looking after new arrivals in important and creative ways.
