We provide professional migration assistance, legal advice and education for people new to Australia who are disadvantaged in their access to legal services.
We work with interpreters, solicitors and registered migration agents and we make sure all our services are confidential. We follow privacy laws and strict codes of conduct set out by governing bodies that protect the people we help and work with.
All of our services are provided completely free of charge to make sure we are accessible to those who need us most.

These visas are issued to people outside of their home country who cannot return home because they are at risk of persecution or serious human rights violations. More…
