Back Your Neighbour is coordinated by the Local Government Mayoral Taskforce Supporting People Seeking Asylum, which is a coalition of more than 40 Local Government Councils encompassing about six million residents across Australia.

We have the support of community services, community groups, peak bodies, policy experts and thousands of individuals to oppose cruel cuts to SRSS support for some of the most vulnerable members of our community.
