The Asylum Seekers Centre
The Sisters of Charity Foundation recently formed a partnership with the Asylum Seeker Centre to provide quality transitional housing for asylum seekers who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.
Homelessness is the most critical issue for those seeking asylum. Approximately 45% of community based asylum seekers are homeless and unable to access any form of government subsidised housing. Around half are not entitled to seek work and approximately 30% have mental health issues associated with torture and trauma.
Access to decent housing is fundamental to helping people overcome some of the very difficult issues they face.
Through this agreement the Sisters of Charity Foundation will provide quality housing for asylum seekers while they receive vital care and support services provided by the Asylum Seeker Centre.
