The Asylum Seeker Resource Centre
Founded in 2001, the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre (ASRC) is Australia’s largest human rights organisation providing support to people seeking asylum.
We are an independent not-for-profit organisation whose programs support and empower people seeking asylum to maximise their own physical, mental and social wellbeing.
We champion the rights of people seeking asylum and mobilise a community of compassion to create lasting social and policy change.
We deliver more services on the ground than any other independent asylum seeker organisation in the country. Our work on the frontline with people seeking asylum informs our practice and enables us to effectively advocate for, and alongside people with lived experience.
We offer holistic programs that protect people seeking asylum from persecution and destitution, support well-being and dignity, and empower people to advance their own future.
We are proudly owned and run by our community and supported by a network of dedicated staff and more than 600 active volunteers in assisting around 7,000 people seeking asylum each year.
To stay independent, we don’t accept funding from the Federal Government.
