Peak youth and advocacy groups are calling on the government to keep refugee and migrants communities in mind when making changes to the budget.

According to a report released by the Centre for Multicultural Youth it identified that young people born outside of Australia have an unemployment rate of 9.1 per cent compared to the 7 per cent unemployment rate of those born in Australia.

The changes to the age and eligibility of Newstart could leave this group of highly vulnerable young people without an essential safety net.

Hanover CEO, Tony Keenan and University of Queensland fellow Linda Graham about this issue.
