If you are looking for services or information to help you, ‘Services and info‘ section.

We do not provide services to refugees or people seeking asylum, and cannot help you with an application to become a refugee or to be resettled in Australia.

The Refugee Council has limited resources to answer general questions from the public.

If you are interested in general information about refugees and people seeking asylum, please look at our ‘Get the facts’ section.

If you want to find information about services or information for refugees and people seeking asylum, please see the ‘Services and info’ section.

If you would like to ask us for other support, please first see what we say about asking us for information, advice or support.

You can email general enquiries to admin@refugeecouncil.org.au, but we cannot guarantee a same-day response. If you are working to a deadline, please phone us.

The Refugee Council of Australia cannot help with requests from:

  • students asking for general information (please see our ‘Get the facts’ section instead)
  • students requesting an interview, except in limited cases.

We may consider requests for interviews from PhD students on topics of interest to us.
