Call to action! Please help people seeking asylum in Australia
The Australian Government is currently removing basic support payments for a significant number of people seeking asylum. In effect, over 7,000 people will lose their sole, basic source of income, which will have a devastating effect on many vulnerable people in our community. Many Catholic organisations across the country are already providing much-needed material support, however, in this particular time of need, we all are encouraged to do more to help.
Catholic Alliance for People Seeking Asylum (CAPSA)
has compiled a comprehensive list of the ways we can practically help.

Life-changing mentors for young carers urgently needed
Community members are being urged to rally around their youngsters as
Villa Maria Catholic Homes (VMCH) Young Carer Mentor Program
urgently seeks mentors for at least 13 young carers living in Seymour, Euroa, Heathcote Junction, Mooroopna, Shepparton, Wangaratta, Wodonga and Boweya. Some of the carers supported by the program are as young as eight and have little family, community or financial support. Research indicates that if they are not adequately supported, their own health and wellbeing can be seriously affected. The mentor program links them with volunteer mentors who give emotional support, life skills and social opportunities.
