Title

2016: Migration Advice and Assistance

Description

Over 2015-16 they managed the Immigration Advice and Application Assistance Scheme (IAAAS) for the ACT. Under the IAAAS Companion House provided: 405 immigration advice sessions (most of these were focused on family reunion applications) and 9 asylum seekers with immigration advice. We also sourced support for people not eligible for the IAAAS - this work is reported more fully under Goal 4. In addition, they ran a volunteer program to support people to complete migration documentation.
