Each year 3500-4000 people of a refugee background settle in Victoria and children and young people aged under 19 years make up half the Humanitarian Program entrants to Victoria.
The Refugee Status Report brings together a wide range of information to provide an overview of how refugee children and young people in Victoria are faring, focusing on children and young people who have entered Australia under the Humanitarian Program.
Data sources include national and international research findings and consultations with refugee community leaders and service providers. Victorian data are included where these are available and accessible.
The report provides an important foundation to guide further monitoring, research and policy development for this priority group of children and young people.
