Compass - Helping Hands
As Australia continues to grapple with boat arrivals, Compass looks at who is helping asylum seekers already here and why.
While the impact of the government’s latest crackdown on boat arrivals is yet to be determined, there remain thousands of asylum seekers in Australian detention centres. Charities are at the forefront of providing assistance to those who are gradually being released into the community. Meantime, on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast a scheme that offers asylum seekers a place to live and the chance to be part of a family has just paired its first host family and asylum seeker.
