The ASRC knows that many people seeking asylum are in crisis because they do not have work rights or access to mainstream social services in Australia.
While we aim to support as many people as possible, the level of need we see always exceeds the resources we have available as a community organisation.
We therefore provide FREE primary health care prioritising people seeking asylum who face the biggest barriers to accessing this human right.
Our Women’s Health Clinic services are available with or without Medicare.
