Discover refugee and asylum seeker stories beside you

The story beside you

Refugees and people seeking asylum are your neighbours, teachers, colleagues and friends.

Get to know their stories and you’ll discover that there is a lot more that unites us than divides us.

Sign the pledge to welcome refugees and people seeking asylum as new Australians.

Donate food and goods

Our Foodbank and Community Meals programs offer food security to over 800 people each week.

We rely on community donations to stock our shelves – almost 90% of our food and essential grocery items are generously donated by people like you.

By donating food or goods to our programs, you will fill an immediate need for refugees and people seeking asylum.

Feast for Freedom is back

This March, we’re inviting you to celebrate the flavours and diversity that people seeking asylum bring to Australia.

Cook traditional dishes for your family, friends or colleagues from recipes gifted to you by refugees, while raising funds for the ASRC.

Express your interest to host a Feast for Freedom at home or in your workplace.
