Refugee Week 2023 – Fighting for Freedom and the future of settlement in Penrith

SydWest Multicultural Services is celebrating Refugee Week 2023 with an important event being held in Penrith on Friday 23 June 2023 from 11am.

The purpose of this event is to explore the future of settlement in the Penrith and Nepean regions, as part of our commitment to supporting new settlers and refugees as they navigate the settlement process and integrate into new communities.

This event is being held in partnership with Penrith City Council, Settlement Services International, and Nepean Multicultural Access.

We will explore discussions around future opportunities Penrith offers as a welcoming and friendly refugee resettlement zone. The event will be a great opportunity to hear from keynote speakers on the status and future planning for settlement, as well as help shape the agenda with the interactive panel discussion.
