What We Do

  • For over 25 years, United Federation of Volunteers for Refugees Action work has been a champion for asylum seeker, Refugees and migrants from around the globe.

  • Our legacy of courageous and compassionate service has made a difference in the lives of hundreds of thousands of vulnerable refugees who have sought safety and hope in Australian’s communities

  • Our history reflects Australian’s deep immigrant roots and passionate commitment to welcoming Support newcomers, especially those who are most in need.

  • In partnership with refugee council Australia nationwide, UFVRA has helped over 99,000 migrants and refugees rebuild their lives in Australia.

  • UFVRA believes in the equal dignity, worth and rights of all Immigrants and all refugees people.

  • UFVRA acknowledges and values the diversity of its members and respects their personal philosophies, political opinions and spiritualties. We therefore encourage and support a diversity of tactics to achieve our common goals.

  • We believe those whose lives and liberty are threatened by persecution; violence and poverty have the right to seek asylum in Australia and other part of the world.

  • We believe Australia is obligated to the international laws and conventions regarding the rights of refugees and asylum seekers. We therefore oppose arbitrary detention and all forms of punitive and deterrent policies towards people seeking safety in Australia or in other states.

  • As Organisation, we believe in a tolerant and humane society that embraces a diversity of cultures. We oppose the xenophobic dehumanising of asylum seekers for political gain or benefit.

Our Philosophy

  • Community based housing in place of mandatory detention

  • Permanent Residency for all refugees instead of temporary visas

  • Full welfare and legal rights for refugees, including access to education, employment and health service

  • The ending of Government Deportations, Forced Repatriation and Refoulment.

  • Abolition of all policies of deterrence, in accordance with international law, including border protection legislation, Regional Agreements, the Pacific Solution and coastguards

  • The promotion of a humane and compassionate society that embraces a diversity of cultures.

Our Objective


ASYLUM SEEKER       |      CHILD PROTECTION       |         IMMIGRANT       |        REFUGEE      |      HOMELESSNESS


We empower refugee and  immigrants  to speak out, become leaders and advocate for change. Through referral for English lessons, cultural events, drama and other activities we support them to build their confidence and skills. Our network helps to combat the isolation faced by all refugees, seeking asylum and creates pathways for them to rebuild their lives with dignity


When refugees tell their own stories, they can change minds and build understanding about what it means to seek safety in Australia and other countries. We work to ensure that refugee and immigrant can speak to the media and at public events, and we partner with arts organisations and influential refugees who help to amplify refugee’s voices


We publish robust research on the experiences of refugee and work with policy makers to make the case for a fairer asylum process. Our volunteer’s campaign against the detention of refugee in partner with Refugee council of Australia has achieved widespread recognition and real policy change. We believe that all refugees, asylum seekers and immigrants have the right to safety, dignity and liberty

The problem

Globally,  Over 61 million people are now forcibly displaced – including more than 21 million refugees. We need all countries to like Australia to step up and help these people

How you can help

Show your support for the 61 million people men, women. Join the movement to show that our community is willing to welcome refugees.

The solution

We realize that Australians have lovely hearts, and welcome individuals from everywhere throughout the globe. We're essentially requesting a framework that permits that liberality to prosper, and invites refugees  into our communities in Australia.


Children around the world are given the educational materials needed for success in the classroom with the help of corporate partners and educators.


Poverty leads to hunger but if we work together, we can create a world where no child goes to bed hungry.

Disaster Response

When we work with community partners, we support our neighbors and work together towards recovery.

Health & Water

Through our programs, we promote healthy immune systems and enable children to develop through adolescence and into adulthood.


We provide food to children and families all over the world, as well as training on the importance of a nutritious diet.


We teach adults the skills necessary in business and financial management to provide for their families.

We need you in the fight against Hunger, poverty, violence and injustice. When we join together, we can be the hands and bridge of those in need, bringing hope to the darkest corners of our world as a powerful force for good. Here's how we do:
