Logo for Circle Humanity
Circle Humanity
Formerly known as Business & Community Action for Refugees (BCAR) Australia, we are a digital platform that aims to support refugee resettlement in Australia. This goal will be achieved by centralising and consolidating the existing services and opportunities that are available to refugees and asylum seekers in Australia. We seek to create the means through which new arrivals can independently access employment, education, training and community services. In addition to this, we want to give community members and businesses a vehicle through which they are able to show their support for humanitarian entrants.

At present, the social services sector is extremely fragmented and difficult to navigate for new arrivals. Circle Humanity’s platform is a solution to this problem. It establishes an efficient system for helping new arrivals develop personal connections with the community, as well as establishing a single access point for all individual settlement requirements.


Logo for Refugee Action Sydney (RAC)
Refugee Action Coalition Sydney (RAC) is a community activist organisation campaigning for the rights of refugees in Australia since 1999. We oppose mandatory detention and offshore processing, and campaign for refugees to be welcomed in Australia. We mount public rallies and organise information stalls and public forums on refugee issues. Our events are widely reported and our members are regularly quoted in the media.
