RAILS has commenced the Unrepresented Asylum Seekers Project to meet the demand for basic legal support to over 5000 asylum seekers in the Queensland community who will not be provided with government funded legal assistance.
Donations to the Project
Our aim is to secure sufficient private funding to employ 2 full-time solicitors/migration agents to work on the Project. RAILS is a registered charity and donations are tax deductible. RAILS will provide a written receipt of your donation. Donations to the Project can be done by direct bank deposit (noting ‘the Project’ in the description line) to:
Account name: Refugee and Immigration Legal Service
BSB: 633-000, Account number: 119205409
Please email Finance@rails.org.au with your address details if you require a receipt.
Support from law firms and migration agents
In seeking to build capacity in the UAS Project, RAILS is seeking volunteer lawyers and migration agents. All solicitors and migration agents who volunteer will be trained and their involvement will be tailored to ensure compliance with the Migration Act. To receive an information sheet or express your interest, please send an email to the Project Coordinator, at UAS@rails.org.au.
