Refugee and newly arrived young people

Young people who have recently arrived in Victoria as refugees can receive assistance from community service organisations or the Refugee Minor Program delivered by the Department of Human Services.

Refugee Minor Program

Children and young people that arrive as refugees without a parent are referred by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection to the Program. Workers provide support in settling into life in Victoria for both the young person and their carer (until the young person turns 18 years of age).
