ARA’s vision is an Australia where all refugees have access to the full range of appropriate settlement services, where refugees have strong supportive communities of their own cultural backgrounds, where the general community is supportive of refugees and engaged with them. Our vision is an Australia where refugees are an integral part of a thriving, prosperous community.

ARA works with individuals and communities from diverse cultural backgrounds, originating from dozens of countries across the world. The organisation receives federal funding under the Settlement Grants Program, and is one of South Australia’s most experienced providers of settlement services. ARA’s services include social support programs, casework, employment assistance, accommodation support, community development and leadership training, migration assistance and youth programs.
