The House of Welcome school holiday activities provide families who are seeking asylum with support and respite during the school holidays. Programs offer children the opportunity to build confidence, skills and relationships with other children.

The program aims to alleviate some stress for parents and families during the process of seeking asylum in Australia. It provides a safe and happy place for kids and their families to build connections with other families and the wider community through social activities for families.
