How your donations help

Thank you for considering a donation to SSI. Your donation will help us ensure that vulnerable people who we work with in NSW receive vital resources and access to programs for their health and social participation, such as SSI's Community Kitchen, sports activities, play groups for mothers and children, and education scholarships.

Many refugees and asylum seekers face financial challenges due to health and social barriers that result from the extreme circumstances they have experienced, and because of language and cultural barriers.

  • $25 can help provide hot meals and activities at SSI Community Kitchen
  • $50 can help provide access to community and sporting activities
  • $100 can help overcome barriers to education through scholarships
  • $200 can help provide business planning support and advice for refugees to pursue their passion, talents and experience in starting up a small business

Thank you for making a difference in the lives of vulnerable refugees and asylum seekers. Your donation supports people to gain independence and reach their potential through meaningful social and economic participation.

SSI is a charitable organisation and donations $2 and over are tax deductible.

Our vision is to achieve a society that values the diversity of its people and actively provides support to ensure meaningful social and economic participation and to assist individuals and families reach their potential.
