The Asylum Seeker Resource Centre (ASRC) is both a place and a movement. We are an independent not for profit, whose programs support and empower people seeking asylum to maximise their own physical, mental and social wellbeing. As a movement, we mobilise and unite communities to create lasting social and policy change for people seeking asylum in Australia. We are proud to be owned and run by our community of volunteers and supporters.
The ASRC employs over 100 staff and depends on 1,000+ dedicated volunteers to carry out programs that support and empower 5,000 people seeking asylum each year.
The Gender Clinic sits within the ASRC's Human Rights Law Program and is the only specialist legal service in Australia that provides legal advice and assistance to individuals seeking asylum, who may fear harm in their countries of origin on the basis of their gender, sexuality or experiences of family violence.
Casework volunteers work under the supervision of our staff Gender Lawyer to provide legal advice and assistance to our clients at all stages of the refugee status determination process, within a limited assistance model.
We provide an energetic and engaging workplace with ongoing training and development opportunities.
We are looking for a commitment of one shift per week, ideally for 12 months. Shifts are currently only available on Thursdays from 10am–5pm.
