New Zealanders from refugee backgrounds participating fully in New Zealand life
ChangeMakers Constitution allows for two types of membership. These are shown below:
- Group membership: being formal incorporated groups representing former refugee communities or communities that have come from refugee type background;
- Associate membership: being refugee background community groups which have not formed an incorporated society
All applications for membership must be approved by the Board. Please note, as a refugee-background community led organisation, only refugee background member groups are eligible to vote at our AGM.
Being either a Group member or Associate member of ChangeMakers Refugee Forum also allows your community to have representation on our Leaders Council and participate in our upcoming leadership training programmes.

Our Board members with Wellington Mayor Justin Lester and MP Golriz Ghahraman
Our Board is governed by people from refugee backgrounds who represent the interests of former refugees generally rather then their communities specifically. We also have 20% representation from other communities.
