This audit of educational pathways for refugee students into higher education was developed by the University of Newcastle as part of the (Re)claiming social capital: Improving language and cultural pathways for refugee students into Australian higher education project, in partnership with Curtin and Macquarie Universities, and funded by the Commonwealth Department of Education and Training. This page lists the pathways in Victoria.
There is a support program for people seeking asylum in Australia called the Status Resolution Support Service or SRSS. It provides a basic living allowance, casework, and access to torture and trauma counselling.
While the support is minimal it is still lifesaving for many people.
The Government is now in the process of taking away this vital support and unveiling a new, reduced support model of SRSS. From June 4th, thousands of people will be exited from the program and are expected to find a job. The only assistance they will get is access to a computer at a local employment agency.
Can you join or campaign calling on Malcolm Turnbull to save these life-saving supports for people seeking asylum and ensure a #RoofOverMyHead ?
