The Edmund Rice Centre works to improve the conditions and treatment of asylum seekers and refugees, including:
- Researching what happens to asylum seekers and refugees who are deported from Australia as part of our Deported to Danger program;
- Providing pro-bono legal and migration assistance to asylum seekers as part of our Asylum Seeker Advice Project;
- Partnering with refugees and people seeking asylum through our empowerment and mentoring projects;
- Advocating for alternative policies to improve the conditions and treatment of asylum seekers and refugees in Australia by running campaigns and lobbying policy makers;
- Raising awareness through community education initiatives about refugees and asylum seekers, such as our Debunking the Myths about Asylum Seekers campaign; and
- Working to overcome community attitudes towards refugees and asylum seekers, by organising events, speaking at forums and producing our Asylum Seeker and Refugee Education Resource.
