The Asylum Seeker Resource Centre (ASRC) is both a place and a movement. Our vision is for all people seeking asylum have their human rights upheld and receive the support and opportunities they need to live independently. 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.
As the largest independent human rights organisation for refugees and people seeking asylum in Australia, the ASRC deliver more services on the ground, providing more free hours of support where it's needed most.
We offer 30 holistic programs that protect people seeking asylum from persecution and destitution, support well-being and dignity, and empower people to advance their own future.
Independent of Federal Government funding, we are supported by a network of more than 1,300 volunteers and 90 staff in assisting around 3,000 people each year.
