Brisbane community members donated $2500 in cash, supermarket gift cards and groceries on Monday 25 June outside the Department of Home Affairs at a donation drive, organised by advocates, for people seeking asylum at risk of homelessness.

Love Makes A Way donation drive organiser Michelle McDonald said that she is worried about the toll that looming income support cuts are already having on people’s physical and emotional health, including that of children. “Advocates are very concerned about the physical, mental and emotional health of the vulnerable people who are facing being cut off from SRSS, with children reportedly ‘acting out’ at school and at home as a result of the increasing stress on their parents,” Ms McDonald said.

“Already stretched charities are scrambling to provide accommodation for people, with many generous community members in Brisbane and Logan opening up their homes to take people in.”
