Who we are

The Refugee Council of Australia (RCOA) is the national umbrella body for refugees and people seeking asylum and those who support them. We have around 200 organisational and over 1,000 individual members. We are a nonprofit organisation which is completely independent of government.

Paul Power, CEO, with youth delegates in Geneva in 2016

What we do

Our core aim is to improve Australia’s refugee and asylum policies, locally, nationally and overseas. We do this by: analysing and researching policies; collaborating and consulting our members, refugee communities and others to identify key issues; and  advocating for change to decision-makers.

We also work to better inform Australians about the impact of Australia’s refugee and asylum policies, through our media work, publications and website, our conferences, and through our schools programs.
