The Asylum Seeker Resource Centre (ASRC) is both a place and a movement. We are an independent not for profit, whose programs support and empower people seeking asylum to maximise their own physical, mental and social wellbeing. As a movement, we mobilise and unite communities to create lasting social and policy change for people seeking asylum in Australia. We are proud to be owned and run by our community of volunteers and supporters.
Our mission is to protect people seeking protection from persecution and destitution, support well-being and dignity, and empower them to advance their own future. We do this by offering 30 holistic programs that provide legal, education, and employment services, as well as healthcare, aid and food to more than 3,000 people each year.
