Support us

We need your help. In order to continue to provide the vital services our clients need, we rely on the generosity of people like you. With no federal government funding most of our support comes from individuals as well as foundations and trusts. Your support means that we can continue to help women, men and children fleeing conflict, persecution, civil unrest or war.

You can make a difference by:

Making a Donation

Make a donation today via our website or by sending a cheque. Your contribution will directly support our clients by providing them with casework support, health care and counselling, accommodation and food. In addition, we provide language, skills training and employment assistance to promote self sufficiency, job placement and the foundations for life in Australia.

By making a regular, monthly gift you can help us better plan and budget to ensure that we support as many asylum seekers as possible.
