Introduction to the Refugee Minor Program in Nuer

The Refugee Minor Program (RMP or the Program) provides support to children and young people who are refugees, under 18 years of age and are in Victoria without their parents. They are known as ‘Unaccompanied Humanitarian (or Refugee) Minors’ (UHMs).

The Department of Immigration and Border Protection (the Department) refer all Unaccompanied Humanitarian Minors who reside in Victoria to the Program.

The Program’s role in such cases requires careful consideration and negotiation with the Department, and may include searching, assessing and approving prospective carers; reporting and providing a recommendation to the Department as to the outcome of the assessment for their consideration; and working with the carers and child/young person to ensure their health and well-being.
