Alongside its many donors, Australia for UNHCR is supported by influential and prominent Australians who give up their time to become Ambassadors for the organisation.

Ambassadors help raise awareness of the humanitarian emergencies which Australia for UNHCR supports and educate Australians about how they can help.

Our Ambassadors come from a broad range of areas. Some are leading humanitarian advocates, often refugees themselves who now call Australia home. Others are high profile supporters from sectors such as the arts, entertainment, finance and sport.
