Migration services and support

Help and support for refugees, people seeking asylum, people in immigration detention and other migrants in Australia.

How Red Cross helps

We provide help and support to refugees, people seeking asylum, people in immigration detention and other people who are vulnerable as a result of migration.

We also provide services to trace and reconnect families who have lost contact as a result of international or internal conflict, war and disaster.

Our migration programs and services protect and uphold the health, dignity and wellbeing of vulnerable migrants in Australia.
