How your donations help

Amid today’s turmoil, where insecurity and uncertainty are rife, SSI acts as a light at the end of the tunnel and a crucial support system for many individuals and families from refugee and migrant backgrounds.

SSI is a community organisation and social business that supports newcomers and other Australians in achieving their full potential. We work with those who experience vulnerability including refugees, people seeking asylum and culturally and linguistically diverse communities.

We help them to build capacity and enable them to overcome inequality, bringing to life SSI's vision to achieve a society that values the diversity of its people and provides support to ensure meaningful social and economic participation.

 

Making a donation is the simple way to pledge your support, especially in times of need.
