At JRS Australia we serve a constantly shifting number of refugees and people seeking asylum in Australia.
At any one time we might be linking someone who has just arrived in Australia to legal support to help them lodge their application for protection, providing emergency relief and food assistance to families who are ineligible for government financial support, visiting with and accompanying people in immigration detention, and participating in global, regional and local dialogues and advocacy work shaping the policies that affect the lives of people seeking asylum. Our commitment to high-level lobbying for the delivery of humane refugee policies remains consistent and is ongoing.
