Discover the reasons why people seek asylum, understand the situations they face and meet those who've experienced it for themselves in Red Cross' engaging community education program.
"I don't want any kids to go through what I went through in my country. For everyone who wants to see a better and fairer world, educating the next generation from a neutral perspective is an obligation; In Search of Safety is a vital program to help kids get the right facts about asylum seekers and refugees."
- Cali, In Search of Safety guest speaker
Who are asylum seekers? Why do they come to Australia? What is life like for them now?
Like many questions surrounding asylum seekers and refugees, there are many myths and misunderstandings about the real reasons people seek asylum in Australia.

In workshops delivered by trained Red Cross staff and volunteers, participants are presented with the facts about asylum seekers and refugees though thought-provoking presentations, engaging group activities and enlightening stories told by speakers who have first-hand experience of seeking and being granted protection in Australia.
