With over 25 years’ experience, RACS is an independent community legal centre whose purpose is to provide a free, specialist legal service for asylum seekers and refugees. RACS strives to ensure that individuals and families, at risk and fair representation before the law, and are granted protection by Australia, and opportunities to seek family unity, in accordance with Australia’s international obligations.

We believe asylum seekers and refugees should be able to live their lives with dignity, security, family unity and freedom. Our work is premised on a commitment to fundamental human rights, human dignity and international protection.
