Who are asylum seekers and refugees? Why do they come to Australia? What is life like for them once they make it to Australia? There are many questions and misunderstandings about people seeking safety. That’s why Red Cross offers schools, community groups and workplaces a chance to discuss the issues they hear about on the news in a neutral and impartial space.
