An emerging social enterprise

HOPE is dedicated to making a lasting impact through raising awareness, building capacity and generating income by and for our members. 

Our worker-members have a wide range of skills, languages, qualifications and experience, We are a uniquely resourced group of people with lived experience of Australia's immigration policy impacts, tertiary qualifications and university level English skills. 

Collectively, we have lots to offer educational institutions, research, government and the community sector. 

We bring a global perspective, strong cross-cultural skills, multiple languages and knowledge of the needs of new migrants, refugees and asylum seekers. We are young leaders within communities that government and other service organisations often find hard to connect with.
