Our way forward
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic we are proud to have continued providing high quality services and support to people seeking asylum. While the day-to-day challenges were many, we also took the time to look deeply at what we had learned during the pandemic, to improve our approach for the ASC’s future. With input from our whole community we reflected on the way we work and committed ourselves to develop in five key ways; to be an active participant in more communities; to be volunteer-powered; to celebrate voice and culture; to be connectors within communities and to measure our impact.
We will continue to be passionate advocates and creative thinkers as we provide practical support and a warm welcome in new ways. This is only possible because of the strength of our Board, staff, hundreds of volunteers and organisational and individual supporters. Together, as an Australian community we open our hearts and minds to people seeking asylum and will continue supporting their human right to seek freedom from persecution, violence and fear.
