Find out more about the next stage of the project

What people say is important. If you have received a letter of invitation from us and still want to be involved in the project, you do not need to do anything. An interviewer from Colmar Brunton Social Research will contact you soon to arrange a time to visit you.

They would like to talk about you and your family's life in Australia. Over the last few years we have spoken with you about your settlement experiences and your life in Australia. We want to speak with you again this year to find out how you are going and how things have changed for you and your family.

We would like to visit you again at your home to talk with you in person. It will take around 60 minutes if you are completing a long survey and 30 minutes for a short survey.

To thank you for your time you will be given a gift card that can be used at shops around you.

An interviewer will be available in your own language.

We really appreciate your help. The project will continue for at least another year and we would like to talk to you again each year to see how you are going. We couldn't keep going without your wonderful support.

If you change your mind, you can stop doing the survey at any time or stop being part of the project.

How will the information be used?

What you tell us will help us understand:

There will be a newsletter each year to let you know how the project is going.

The Australian Institute of Family Studies will write a report about what helps people settle into life here and what makes it harder.

Researchers, policy makers and service providers will use the information to help improve programs and policies for humanitarian migrants in Australia.
