Be part of team Asylum Seekers Centre in the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival 2021. If there was ever a time to virtually band together, it would be NOW! Join the Blackmores Virtual Sydney Running Festival from 19 September to 17 October 2021 to stay motivated and connected during these really trying times. Event distances include a Marathon, Half Marathon, 10k Bridge Run and 3.5 Family Fun Run.
The Asylum Seekers Centre provides practical and personal support for people seeking asylum living in the community. Our services include casework, accommodation, financial relief, health care and counselling, employment assistance, education, advocacy, food and recreational activities.
There has been a massive increase in need for services during COVID-19. Like everyone in the community, people seeking asylum have been affected by job losses, but they have not had the safety net of JobSeeker or JobKeeper payments. Please help us to continue supporting people seeking asylum by connecting them to the services, support and community they need.
