Learning resources

Who seeks asylum? What happens when they do? Why do they come to Australia? What is life like for them now?

Find out more about the people behind the headlines seeking refuge across the globe, the organisations and people who help them during their journey, the journalists that cover their stories, and more.

We have put together a list of valuable learning tools and resources to give you a better understanding of these topics. There is something for everyone: reading, watching and listening.

If you need any help navigating these, or for any further information, get in touch. We run free workshops for schools, workplaces or community groups to increase public understanding of the context and experience of seeking safety.
