The Frontline Immigration Advice Project offers on-going training and resources to charities and community organisations to enable them to provide competent, appropriately regulated immigration advice and information.

Is your organisation;

  • Working with destitute migrants and asylum seekers?
  • Struggling to find them appropriate, free immigration legal advice?
  • Interested in providing adequate regulated immigration advice?

With significant cuts to legal aid, the not-for-profit sector is facing an unprecedented demand for immigration advice. However, immigration advice must be regulated. It is a criminal offence to give unregulated immigration advice.

Who does this service support?

The Frontline Immigration Advice Project offers a rolling program of training and resources to charities and community organisations to enable them to provide competent, appropriately regulated immigration advice and information.

By increasing the capacity of frontline organisations to deliver free-to-access immigration legal advice, the project aims to ensure that more vulnerable migrants will be able to access the advice that they need in order to escape destitution.

The Frontline Immigration Advice project offers free training in immigration law, such as:

  • Assistance through the Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner (OISC), registration process
  • Support with study and coaching for OISC assessments
  • Advice on alternative approaches to meeting the needs of destitute migrants
