Recognising that Australia is enriched by the inclusion of people from different cultures and countries, our vision is for vulnerable people to receive fair and just migration outcomes. IARC provides free legal advice to some of the most vulnerable people in Australia including migrants, refugees and asylum seekers. 

This past year IARC gave assistance to 795 vulnerable people, and provided over 1330 advices. Behind these statistics are individuals whose lived experience has often included trauma, physical and psychological violence, dispossession, and marginalization. IARC’s clients are often fleeing persecution, torture and violence. Many have been granted entry to Australia on humanitarian or protection visas,  and they now want to be reunited with family and loved ones. Others are seeking asylum. Many have experienced significant trauma and suffer from depression and anxiety, or other physical illnesses and may be homeless, victims of domestic violence, have disability or mental incapacity. Others have come to Australia on family, spousal, child or carer visas. All our clients live with significant disadvantage.Over 40% of our clients are homeless or at risk of homelessness, 11% are in prison or in detention, and 9% had a physical or psychological disability or other health issue. Over 40% are women who are experiencing family violence.  Ensuring access to a just immigration process to these most vulnerable people, lies at the heart ofwhat IARC does.

We are a  community legal centre independent from Government and are a registered charity and all donations are tax deductible. Our advice is expert,compassionate and confidential.
