Giving Day 2024 - helping people find a safe haven


Dear RAR community,


Thank you for your ongoing support and passion for helping people seeking asylum and for your generosity towards the Asylum Seekers Centre (ASC).



As you know, ASC has been a safe haven for people fleeing danger - war, famine, persecution in their home countries and poverty, violence and systemic injustice in Australia - for over 30 years.

The week leading up to 22 February 2024 will mark the Asylum Seekers Centre’s second annual Giving Day campaign. In 2023, our inaugural Giving Day campaign inspired hundreds of donations, increased awareness of ASC, and helped provide life-changing wraparound care for almost 4000 people seeking asylum in our community, and their families.

This year, to meet the increased need in our community, we've increased our target in the hope of raising $300,000 in much-needed funding, as well as growing the supporter base that underpins our vital services. 

We're asking friends like you to become Giving Day Champions by creating teams, donating to the campaign and sharing with your networks to help spread the word.

I've attached a PDF detailing ways you can support the day. Our webpage is in countdown mode, but you can start creating teams now.

We are grateful for your enduring support of ASC and appreciate any help you can provide to hit our target and inspire the wider community to help people seeking asylum.

I look forward to hearing from you.
