Asylum Seeker Resource Centre

(Unverified non-profit organisation)

The Asylum Seeker Resource Centre is Australia’s leading asylum seeker aid, health and advocacy organization. The Centre acts as a one-stop shop for asylum seekers, providing medical care, food parcels, employment and counselling services, and works with destitute asylum seekers as well as those seeking to build new lives in Australia.

Since 2001 the ASRC has helped play an important part (with many other refugee organizations) in creating real social change for asylum seekers including helping:

  • End the policy of children in detention
  • End of Temporary Protection Visas
  • End of charging people for being in detention
  • End of the 45 day rule
  • Closure of Manus Island and Nauru detention centres
  • Asylum Seekers in Victoria have access to free medical emergency care in our public health system
