Information for participants

Thank you for taking part in the Building a New Life in Australia project. The project couldn’t keep going without your valuable contribution.

Thank you infographic

We are pleased to have the opportunity to reconnect with you. We know that it’s been a long time since we were last in touch, and a lot has happened since then. We are starting by contacting everyone between April and May 2022 to check if you would be willing to speak to us again. We hope that the next interview for the project will take place in the second half of 2022 and into 2023.

We hope that you will keep speaking with us about your settlement experiences. You have given us important feedback about what can be done to help new humanitarian migrants living in Australia. Your opinions are being heard.
