To ensure a smooth transition, why not arm yourself with some key facts, find out about essential services, and learn about supports that will help you settle into your new home.

We Are Good Neighbours Australia
Good Neighbours Australia is part of the Global Good Neighbours Partnership which reaches about 7 million people each year, including 221,000 sponsored children in 41 countries.
We reach out to neighbours suffering from poverty, disasters and oppression and help them achieve self-reliance and rebuild hope.
Our development projects focus on education, health, nutrition, water and sanitation, and creating training and employment opportunities. We also provide emergency aid.
Good Neighbours Australia was launched in 2018 to support these international programs and relief efforts while also responding to local needs within the Australian community and our neighbouring countries in Asia.
