Statement regarding people seeking asylum

The Uniting Church in Australia, Queensland Synod is deeply concerned about the welfare of refugees, both those detained in Nauru in Australia’s name and those who have come to Australia seeking safety and have had their supports and benefits cut off by the Australian Government.

Our firm position is that people seeking asylum and refugees should have their human rights upheld. This means they are supported with fairness, compassion and justice.
