SUPPORT GROUP

People from refugee backgrounds suffer from a loss of identity, social isolation, language and cultural barriers and the uncertainty that comes from losing everything they have ever known and the uncertainty of their future in Australia. The horrors they flee from, the trauma and the upheaval of their experiences and the unfamiliarity of a new country they are settling in creates immense fear, often immobilising them from taking action to improve their situation causing severe depression and PTSD.

Operational Ethos

Our Adult Support groups aims to provide a safe and welcoming environment where all people can relax, make friends and contacts, share experiences, learn new ideas and skills, and find pathways to connect to services and opportunities.

I am asking for a change in policy because I believe protecting our borders at the cost of our humanity, decency and compassion has transformed us into human rights abusers. These people who come by boat are you and I…..your brothers and sisters….daughters and sons. There but for the grace of God goes your or I. We are better than this. We are smarter than this. There is another option. Please stop turning your heads from the abuse this government perpetrates in your name.
