We strongly suggest that Christians always begin by partnering with an organisation that has a great track record of working towards justice for people seeking asylum in Australia, rather than going it alone!

If you aren't convinced, have a quick watch of this video where advocates Jarrod McKenna and Greg Lake explain the 'why'

There are some amazing things and amazing people already doing great things for people seeking asylum and refugees around Australia with thousands of churches across Australia coming alongside people seeking asylum in a multitude of ways that go largely unnoticed. We are eager to celebrate them and their work in the Lord.

Here's just a few organisations to check out to learn about the various work of Christians (and other important asylum seeker advocacy groups). They are all organisations that we work with and alongside and would encourage you to support and pray for too. So please check out the links and see some of the great work people are doing for asylum seekers and refugees.
