• Due to global concern about COVID-19 and the health of our clients and the wider Nauruan community,
    OSSTT staff have been asked to leave Nauru and return to Australia immediately. We leave Nauru with
    heaviness in our hearts and profound concern for the refugees and asylum seekers who remain there.
    We hope to return one day and will continue to support our clients both in
    Nauru and also in PNG in whatever way we can.
    If you have any questions please feel free to contact the OSSTT head office on

You are invited to the 3rd Australia and New Zealand Refugee Trauma Recovery in Resettlement Conference, "Holding Hope in an Uncertain World".

South Australia is proud to be hosting this significant event. We are fortunate to have attracted many distinguished national and international speakers who are leaders in the field of human rights and refugee trauma recovery. Our exciting program offers participants many opportunities to listen and learn, to discuss innovations in practice, to consider how we sustain support to people and communities impacted by torture, and to cast a critical eye over the issue of human rights in the current socio-political context.

We hope you find much of interest in the formal program as well as enjoy the many opportunities to socialize and catch up with colleagues and friends from around Australia and the world.

We look forward to meeting you in Adelaide in 2023.
