Dignity not Destitution

Around 12,000 people seeking asylum in Australia may be at risk of losing core services and financial support due to Government changes in the Status Resolution Support Services. The SRSS is a regular payment to help with basic living costs for those who live in Australia awaiting a decision about their immigration status.

COMMUNITY SPONSORSHIP TO AUSTRALIA

The ACRT, together with Save the Children, Refugee Council, Amnesty International and Welcome to Australia are recommending guiding principles for the new Community Support Program (CSP). This will enable members of the Australian community to sponsor visas for refugees who wish to rebuild their lives in Australia.
