Last month, the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre’s (ASRC) Employment Program launched their research report, titled: ‘Towards an optimal employment strategy for people seeking asylum in Victoria’. The report is a timely piece of research that outlines the current state of play and forward-looking recommendations for policy and service delivery in this area.
The report represents an important step forward in promoting sector-wide collaboration and highlighted opportunities to strengthen a sector-wide, multi-agency approach. It is the ASRC’s hope that this report will build greater awareness of the immediate challenges faced by people seeking asylum in the local labour market, and serve as a powerful tool for policy and service providers to advocate for change.

The report was made possible through the generous funding support from the Shine On Foundation, and the skill of our research partners – Swinburne University’s Centre for Social Impact.
