THE DIGNITY PROJECT
Many of the people who have come to the
Toowoomba Region seeking our nation’s protection have had their dignity stripped from them.
This started in their country of origin where they
were forced to flee for their lives. It continued when Australia placed them in detention centres, depriving them of basic rights for far longer than it takes any other civilised nation to process refugees. It has now been compounded as people are forced to beg for charity and given a message that they are not welcome.
The Dignity Project provides administrative assistance to refugees and asylum seekers in filling in Departmental forms. The Dignity Project services are by appointment only.
The Dignity Project is not a legal service and does not offer legal or migration advice.
Toowoomba is officially a Refugee Welcome Zone and this project aims to bring together local people, businesses and agencies of good will to restore some of this dignity.
