When Tamworth said "no" to a group of African refugees the fall-out touched a nerve in the Australian psyche. In this story Compass explores what happens when a community says 'yes'. The town of Dorrigo's (population 969) extraordinary journey began three years ago when tensions were running high over Australia's refugee intake. For local B&B owner, Helen Proud, the debate was a call to arms. She and a handful of locals approached the Sanctuary Foundation, a charity that helps refugees come to Australia. Nine months later a family of eight stepped off the plane into their lives.
