Who we are

Ourstralia is an initiative by Balmain for Refugees, created to help spark conversation and awareness about Australia’s current treatment of asylum seekers.

BALMAIN FOR REFUGEES

Balmain for Refugees (BFR) have been helping hundreds of asylum seekers settle into Australia since 2001. They’re a welcoming bunch of people from all walks of life. From volunteers, lawyers, and students, to psychologists, interpreters and sympathetic community members. 

But BFR don’t just help asylum seekers learn English and buy groceries, they also provide much needed legal assistance on behalf of asylum seekers who have been persecuted or tortured in their home countries. 

It is thanks to BFR’s vision for a better (and more welcoming) country that Ourstralia was born, and our message promoting a fair go for these people can reach as many Aussies as possible. 

If you’re interested in helping BFR, they’re always on the look out for new volunteers. Contact them at balmain4refugees@gmail.com.
