The People They Make Us Welcome, a new policy paper by the Centre for Multicultural Youth explores how well newly arrived young people are settling by exploring their sense of
belonging in the Australian community. Research around young people’s experiences of belonging is limited. Although we know a lot about youth transitions we know less about how young people belong. The degree to which newly arrived young people are able to build a sense of self and social connectedness in Australia has a profound impact on other aspects of their settlement and overall wellbeing.
