This report presents findings from a research project, ‘Community perspectives on health and wellbeing for people from refugee-backgrounds resettled in regional areas’, focusing on the regional city of Wagga Wagga from 2019-20. The aim of this project was to engage with people from local refugee communities to explore their resettlement experiences and how these experiences relate to health and wellbeing issues. A co-design methodological approach was adopted as a way to meaningfully involve community members in the design, implementation and evaluation phases of the project. As such, the project represented an approach that was conducive to supporting communities to speak on their own behalf, to redress marginalisation, and to generate insights and understanding about complex health-related issues experienced by refugee communities.
