Banners welcoming refugees and asylum seekers to Bass Coast Shire will be installed on Bass Coast Shire Council Civic buildings in Wonthaggi and Cowes this week.

At the September Council meeting, Council resolved to partner with Rural Australians for Refugees and the Refugee Council of Australia to display the welcome banners for at least 12 months.

It also committed to, in collaboration with relevant authorities and agencies, investigate opportunities to provide practical support to the Syrian and Iraqi Humanitarian refuges approved by the Federal Government.
