SCARF Refugee Support

Support SCARF


When people arrive in the Illawarra as humanitarian refugees, they come with a lifetime of skills, talent and experience. But many also carry personal histories of trauma and upheaval. While they’re determined to rebuild their lives in Illawarra, they often encounter the many obstacles that come with settling in a new country.

Since 2005, SCARF Refugee Support has worked to bridge this gap, by linking local volunteers with refugee families, and providing crucial support to over 1800 men, women and children in the Illawarra. We want to help each individual achieve their full potential.  

SCARF’s commitment to our community is endless, but unfortunately, our funding is not. We need your support to keep the doors open and the welcome mat out.

As a SCARF supporter, your gift will build a sense of belonging and social inclusion for refugee families. 

You will make it possible for us to keep providing refugee families with a range of targeted programs designed to help them achieve a thriving and independent life.

As our supporter you’ll receive regular updates that show you exactly how your donation has gone towards empowering refugee families to build new lives, a receipt for your tax deductible donation, and our eternal gratitude.  

Your donation can and will transform a life, a family, and an entire community.

Thank you for your support.
