Seeking asylum is a human right.

People seeking asylum are some of the most vulnerable in our community. Many are fleeing persecution and harm, travelling to a strange country, often at great risk, hoping for comfort and support.

The Australian Government has decided to grant Final Departure Bridging Visa E to asylum seekers transferred from Nauru and Papua New Guinea for medical treatment.

While the visa offers families their freedom, the government’s support stops 3 weeks after leaving community detention. After that, they are expected to support
themselves. For most of these families, this will be a challenge.

They may not be confident speaking English yet, or they might not have the right skills to find work. Even if they do, jobs are hard to come by in a pandemic.

Give a fresh start to families in crisis.

With your support, we offer families the support they need for their fresh start.

With our Asylum Seeker Programs, we can help them find a home, feed their families and feel positive about their future. But we
can’t do it alone.

Can you open your heart and your home?

If you’re interested in housing families as they
get back on their feet, please get in touch. We
are searching for potential spaces for families
for up to 6 months.

Be a part of their fresh start.

Can’t help with housing? Don’t worry – there are many ways to get involved. You can:
