CARAD is an independent not-for-profit organisation working with people of refugee background who now live in Western Australia. Our priorities are:-
advocating for positive change in the refugee determination process to ensure fair and humane treatment for all
– supporting community based asylum seekers and refugees with emergency accommodation and a small living allowance if they are not eligible for other funding
– coordinating a volunteer program providing English language and homework support to adults and children from a refugee background
– speaking out against mandatory detention – visiting, supporting and advocating on behalf of people held in detention centres in Perth, Christmas Island and Curtin.
We have an emerging need for gift cards to give to clients so that they can purchase food or clothing. These are easy to get from Coles/Myer, Woolworths (Essential or Groceries only) or IGA. Add a gift card to your shopping basket, and send it to the CARAD office (245 Stirling St, Perth WA 6000).
We recommend that the sum on the card be between $20 and $50.
