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.

HOW WE CREATE CHANGE
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
