The Indo-Chinese Refugee Association was established in 1975 by a group of people concerned at the plight of refugees arriving in Australia from Vietnam. They aimed to establish a compassionate community response to ensuring the welfare of refugees, and practical measures to assist them to settle into their new community. The Indochinese Refugee Association changed its name to the Australian Refugee Association in 1994.
