What is an RCO?

A refugee community organisation (RCO) is a community-led group of people who support refugees and asylum seekers. Depending on their size, activities and funding, they may organise cultural events, offer advocacy and support, develop language classes, support members with building skills such as IT or English, and host a range of other activities.
