The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (the Ministry) is the lead agency for the operational coordination of refugee-specific services and for leading the implementation of the whole-of-government New Zealand Refugee Resettlement Strategy 2012 (the Strategy). This is a whole-of-government approach to delivering improved former refugee resettlement outcomes so that former refugees achieve self-sufficiency, social integration and independence.

Currently, the Ministry (through Immigration NZ) is responsible for managing the immigration policies that provide settlement for an annual quota of 1,500 refugees referred by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and subsequently selected by New Zealand for resettlement. The quota arrives in seven intakes of approximately 215 refugees, each financial year. Each intake participates in a five-week reception programme at the Mangere Refugee Resettlement Centre (MRRC) before transitioning into the community.

There are currently thirteen refugee settlement locations where the delivery of refugee settlement support services are contracted until 30 June 2022. Current services have a strong focus on addressing refugees’ early settlement needs, encouraging independence and linking refugees to mainstream services. This includes practical support for daily living and a community orientation programme in preparation for independent living within New Zealand communities.

As a consequence of the combined contract expiry date of 31 June 2022 for all current settlement locations, the Ministry is seeking to purchase settlement support services in 13 settlement locations for former refugees arriving via the Refugee Quota Programme from 1 July 2022 to at least 30 June 2028.
