Asylum Seeker Support Program: The value of Catholic Agencies Working Together to Deliver a Transitional Housing and Support Program for Asylum Seekers in Victoria

Together with CatholicCare Victoria and St John of God Health Care, we will evaluate the Asylum Seeker Support Program which provides transitional accommodation and other support to families and individuals seeking asylum in Melbourne, Victoria. The evaluation will help inform future program growth, sustainable partnerships between Catholic health, social service agencies and local parishes, and we believe will become an important advocacy tool for social services campaigning for fairer social and economic policies for people who are seeking asylum.
