Standing Together for People Seeking Asylum 

There are further cuts to the Status Resolution Support Services (SRSS) program happening imminently. This means that more people seeking asylum than ever will no longer have an income (through Centrelink) or casework support. The cuts will predominately effect families with children under the age of 6, putting them at risk of homelessness and destitution.

The cuts are in excess of $100 million dollars nationally, placing an enormous burden on the not-for-profit sector to provide the essentials people seeking asylum are being systematically denied.  

There also ongoing concerns for people seeking safety who are in immigration detention both onshore and in offshore centres. 

What does this mean for CARAD? 

We have to stand together and fight for people seeking safety in Australia. We won't give up. 

People can't survive without food, shelter and healthcare. When people don't have an income through SRSS or work and don't have casework support, they come to CARAD for help. We are trying our best to keep up with the demand, but the need is outstripping our resources at a rapid pace. We need to gather more support. 

As an independent voice for the rights of people seeking safety, CARAD will play a critical role in advocating for systemic change to immigration policy. We need to raise our voice even louder.
