The program
The In Search of Safety Community Education Program was developed by Red Cross in WA to help build awareness and understanding of the real situations facing people who come to Australia to seek asylum. It aims to dispel the misunderstandings and myths surrounding asylum seekers through thought-provoking presentations, engaging group activities and enlightening real-life stories, in order to create a more welcoming Australia.

The opportunity
As an In Search of Safety Volunteer, you will have the opportunity to support the program to create awareness and challenge myths and stereotypes about asylum seekers, refugees and migrants in primary and secondary schools. In addition, you will be actively participating in the conversations with community and will provide the participants a valuable opportunity to hear real-life stories from people with first-hand experiences seeking asylum in Australia.

The impact
Red Cross volunteers play a vital role in raising awareness of asylum seekers and refugees in Australia. As part of the In Search of Safety Program you will contribute to change the perception of local community on asylum seekers, refugees and migrants.
