It provides background information, examples of good practice and recommendations to guide councils that are working to help settle refugees in their communities.

This report prepared by New Zealand Red Cross in May 2021 identifies current and emerging issues in key migrant population groups in New Zealand.


This report was published in 2013 by New Zealand Red Cross.  It was produced for all agencies providing health and wellbeing services to former refugees.


 This report was published in 2014 by New Zealand Red Cross.  It describes the resettlement experiences of refugee youth (aged between 12 and 24 years) in their first 12 months after arrival in New Zealand from the perspective of refugee youth, parents, New Zealand Red Cross Refugee Services staff and government and non-government organisations.
