Guided by Justice and Compassion

We are united by the vision of an open hearted Australia where people seeking refuge or asylum are treated with justice and compassion.

Whether they are in detention or are living in the community, refugees and asylum seekers currently receive only basic support, and even this is being taken away. The basic living allowance, casework support, and access to torture and trauma counseling provided by the Status Resolution Support Services (SRSS) program has been cut back by the Australian Government.  Since March and COVID-19 many of those living in the community have lost their casual and part time jobs.   Anyone on a Temporary Visa is not entitled to JobSeeker.

In 2019 BMRSG provided:

  • $43,000 for general support, including medical expenses, energy bills, food supplies and white goods.
  • $16,000 worth of legal support
  • $16,000 of emergency support to people who had nothing to live on
  •  $9,000 to help with rent
  •  $5,000 for school requirements
  • Supported the payment of essential bills.
  • Phone vouchers

Without access to social security payments and denied a chance to work, many refugees and asylum seekers rely wholly on the generosity of others. Your donation can make all the difference.
