Spotlight On Refugee Advice and Casework Service (RACS)
RACS Mission: To achieve Justice and Dignity for and with Refugees through dedicated legal services and advocacy.
RACS is a strong, independent public voice for the rights of refugees and people seeking asylum. We assist people of all nationalities, religions, and sexual and gender identities.
In 1987, RACS quietly opened its doors with very few staff but with very big ambitions to provide access to crucial legal support for people seeking asylum in Australia.
For 35 years, thousands of courageous people from all corners of the world have walked through our doors. They have been welcomed and supported by hundreds of committed staff, passionate legal students and thousands of volunteers. Many of these refugees now live happy, safe and secure lives alongside us, as part of our communities.
