This backgrounder is a starting point. The Refugee Youth Action Group (Wellington) is made up of government and non-government agencies keen to see action on the issues so refugee-background youth can reach their full potential. They will be advocating for other organisations and stakeholders to also support refugee-background youth to overcome some of the unique challenges they face.
There is a lot of valuable research that has been done with refugee-background youth in the last five years, and some very positive initiatives, but in terms of ‘The Big Picture’, very little has been done to provide better, systemic and coordinated support for refugee-background youth in many aspects of their lives.
