In this section, the Hub would like to offer some useful information and resources for our volunteers and supporters. We know that many people are interested in learning as much as they can about the work that is done by our organisations, within our sector and for people seeking asylum both in Australia and internationally. There are some fantastic sites and tools available that we hope will assist when volunteering with us, when seeking more knowledge, or promoting a greater understanding around refugees and people seeking protection.
The four organisations of the Hub provide face to face services assisting people seeking protection. In the below timeline, we’ve listed some key events that highlight strategic and political moments that have impacted our sector.
For a more comprehensive timeline of major events in the history of Australia’s Refugee and Humanitarian Program, please see The Refugee Council of Australia’s ‘Get the Facts’ page: https://www.refugeecouncil.org.au/get-facts/
