RISE is a voluntary organisation, operating at the grassroots level and exists to assist refugees and asylum seekers in building new lives. We provide advice, we engage in community development, enhance opportunities, and campaign for refugee and asylum seeker rights. We operate with some of the least supported members of our society, and in areas that are grossly underserviced and underfunded. To respond to this need, we are looking for volunteers. RISE services that currently require your help include our: Advocacy program, Settlement assistance program, and our Music & Arts program.
