Abstract People in Australia living with disabilities who are also from refugee backgrounds, or who are seeking asylum, face enormous challenges. In addition to the traumatic histories they bring with them, the shifting political and policy landscapes have resulted in a fractured and disintegrated service response, with changes to immigration policy and the introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme set to exacerbate existing issues in the system. This paper outlines the shifting policy contexts and presents findings of a consultation process undertaken by the Refugee Council of Australia.
