Anglicare SA

What the service offers

Refugee Homemaker Kits are given to new arrivals who move into AnglicareSA housing, turning a new house in an unfamiliar country into a home.

These kits are a welcome gift, a help-settle-in-favour, a practical present and a way of saying “welcome home.”

Who can access the service

The Refugee Home Maker Kits are like a little housewarming party in a box – and anyone can join in!
