Dignity not Destitution
Around 12,000 people seeking asylum in Australia may be at risk of losing core services and financial support due to Government changes in the Status Resolution Support Services. The SRSS is a regular payment to help with basic living costs for those who live in Australia awaiting a decision about their immigration status.
COMMUNITY SPONSORSHIP TO AUSTRALIA
The ACRT, together with Save the Children, Refugee Council, Amnesty International and Welcome to Australia are recommending guiding principles for the new Community Support Program (CSP). This will enable members of the Australian community to sponsor visas for refugees who wish to rebuild their lives in Australia.
Immigration Detention Visitor Experiences
The Refugee Council of Australia is collating information on how the new detention visiting procedures are impacting on being able to visit detainees. Your experiences can help advocate for better visiting experiences.
