Welcome to the Asylum Circle website
Asylum Circle is a collaborative project in Queensland that contributes to the support of people seeking asylum, and operates within Communify Qld.
As the global Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation continues to evolve, our priority is to protect the health and wellbeing of our visitors, team members and the wider community.
We’re working to develop new ways to respond and support our community so please keep in touch with what’s happening with Communify services and programs here.

Who we are
Asylum Circle enhances pathways for ongoing coordinated support for people seeking asylum. We facilitate projects and assist with funding with the aim of improving services for people seeking asylum.
Working for change
Our intention is that the resources and expertise of NGOs, church groups, mosques, community volunteers and businesses are utilised more efficiently through a collaborative effort.
