Refugee welcome zone

In 2014 Cardinia Shire became a Refugee Welcome Zone, an initiative of the Refugee Council of Australia.

A Refugee Welcome Zone is a council area which has made a commitment in spirit to welcoming refugees and migrants from refugee backgrounds into the community, upholding the human rights of refugees, as we do for all of our residents, and enhancing cultural and religious diversity in the community.
