Around 100 Asylum Seeker Centre staff and Board members, ASC Ambassadors, clients, volunteers, donors, funders, sector and organisation partners attended the evening reception. Many had the opportunity to share their experiences, stories and connections with the Centre and the people we support with the Governor and his wife.
