Under the Special Humanitarian Program (SHP), a person or community organisation can assist another person or family who are living in a refugee-like situation overseas to come to Australia.
A proposer can be a relative, friend or an organisation that sponsors an individual or a family who has been forced to flee their home country because of war and exposure to persecution to resettle in Australia.
To become a proposer, you must agree to help the person or the family to settle in Australia by providing practical and financial assistance.
The following flyer provides information about your role and responsibilities as a proposer.
