Refugee Services Aotearoa New Zealand is now part of New Zealand Red Cross.
On 10 December 2012, Refugee Services Aotearoa New Zealand officially became part of New Zealand Red Cross! Our existing staff will continue to provide all our support programmes and services, as we carry on doing the great work we have done for nearly forty years.
We will work closely with local communities, volunteers, staff and former refugees across the country to ensure newly arrived refugees continue to receive the support they need to build new lives in their new home.
Together, we will continue to help those who have lost everything to start again.
Resettle, prosper and grow.
