What are the campaign objectives?
The objectives of the Back Your Neighbour campaign are to:
1. Change (reverse or mitigate) the Federal Government’s current policy on SRSS support for people seeking asylum in the community
2. Increase humanitarian support from the Victorian Government
3. Support the Federal Opposition to maintain its new position supporting people seeking asylum in the community during the election period and, if elected, into government.
Who are we?
The Back Your Neighbour campaign is run by the Local Government Mayoral Taskforce Supporting People Seeking Asylum, a group of Australian Councils who are speaking out against Federal Government cuts to the Status Resolution Support Services (SRSS) program leaving thousands of asylum seeker families living in Australia destitute and homeless.
