About Us

The ARCC advocates on behalf of the resettled communities of Auckland. We promote a sustainable, integrated resettlement approach that maintains the cultural identities of former refugees and allows them to thrive in their new home country.

The ARCC serves resettled communities as a vehicle for finding a united, stronger voice, and sharing it with the resettlement sector and New Zealand society as a whole.

The current ARCC members are 19 registered resettled community organisations from 15 different countries including Afghanistan, Burmese, Congolese, Burundian, Eritrean, Ethiopian, Kurdish, Rwandan, South Sudanese, Iraq, Sudanese, Somali, Ugandan, Sri Lankan, and Palestinian communities.
