Marist180 believes our society is enriched by diversity, which is why we support, celebrate and respect those seeking asylum and refugees within Australia, regardless of faith, religion or culture.

 

Settling Children as Humanitarian Migrants

Marist180’s Unaccompanied Humanitarian Minors (UHM) program supports children and young people who have travelled to Australia without parents or family support under the Australian Government’s Humanitarian Program. Our approach adapts and refines our Out of Home Care model to provide a safe home environment, while at the same time, meeting the unique developmental, cultural and care needs of young people aged 4-18 who have arrived as refugees from countries such as Syria, Afghanistan and Iran. Our multi-lingual, multi-faith team applies a therapeutic approach to care connecting each young person with their culture and religion while also encouraging them to engage with their new Australian home. Our Marist180 carers and caseworkers also help each young person to create their own care plan aimed at developing independent living and English language skills. They are also supported to access education, medical and mental health support services.
