About Us

In 2014, the Catholic Alliance for People Seeking Asylum was formed to turns hearts and minds to compassion. We dream of an Australia that welcomes and respects people seeking asylum.

We will achieve this by building on the groundswell of support from Australian Catholics; linking people together, and creating a collective Catholic voice for change. Together, we will advocate for policy changes to better uphold the dignity and rights of each person seeking asylum.

Jesuit Social Services and Cabrini Health are joint founders of the Alliance, which is supported by an advisory group of national representatives.
