Asylum seeker and refugee support
Asylum Seeker Welcome Centre
The Asylum Seeker Welcome Centre is located at 212 Sydney Road Brunswick.
The Asylum Seeker Project
The Asylum Seeker Project supports the most vulnerable people who are seeking asylum in the community. Due to their legal status, many asylum seekers are unable to work, or access any forms of welfare provided by the Australian Government.
The program is unfunded and relies on the generosity of private donors, philanthropic grants and trusts and Church congregations throughout Victoria, who support us through various fundraising activities and volunteer their time and facilities to support local services.
Uniting is a child safe organisation and is committed in everyday practice to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all children, at all times. As a ‘child safe’ organisation, volunteering with Uniting is subject to a satisfactory national (and international where relevant) police check and Working With Children Check (in Victoria) and/or Working With Vulnerable People Check (in Tasmania) prior to commencement in any service or undertaking.
