What are the campaign objectives?
The objectives of the Back Your Neighbour campaign are for the:
1. Federal Government to stop its funding cuts and fully reinstate the Status Resolution Support Services (SRSS) program as a matter of urgency
2. State and Territory Governments to follow suit with Victorian and Queensland Governments in providing interim funding to local services who are supporting individuals and families put at risk by SRSS cuts
3. The Federal Government to provide adequate resources to fairly expedite the ‘legacy caseload’ of people seeking asylum so that their status is fully resolved
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.
