Households currently receiving income support could be eligible for two $750 payments.

Within Eric’s Inclusion Team are the areas of multicultural pastoral care, justice, peace and ecology, ecumenism and inter-religious relations and RAP (Reconciliation Action Plan).

At the heart of the Catholic Church is the call to love. This means that everyone is welcome in the Catholic Church. We also recognise that at times we haven’t been the best at welcoming and need to work on developing intentional pathways of inclusion.
To this end, Eric Robinson has been appointed Associate Director, Inclusion. Eric is an experienced leader, group facilitator and mentor, with a passion for equity and justice. Eric has a lifelong commitment to an inclusive Church that welcomes marginalised groups and champions the many benefits of diversity.
Now, along with his team of dedicated staff, he will work towards identifying and removing barriers of exclusion within the Archdiocese of Brisbane.

Let us pray that the voices of people who have fallen through the cracks be finally heard and acted upon.
Catholic Justice & Peace Commission of the Archdiocese of Brisbane

I had a Zoom call with migrants living in Australia on temporary visas- people who have jobs or who have recently lost jobs because of the coronavirus crisis.

One of them said to me that they feel like they are “currently living through the certainty of the uncertainty.”

Well, that's what we're all living through right now. We are all facing this crisis together.

Regardless of where visa holders come from or what visa they might be on, these people are members of our community.

If the 1.1 million visa holders in Australia don't have access to JobKeeper or JobSeeker or any form of income support, they're going to be forced to keep working or keep seeking work.

They risk homelessness. They risk impoverishment.

If they cannot self-isolate, that puts every public health measure we are currently enacting at risk.

It is no good for the Australian community to be practising self-isolation if we have over a million people living in the country who cannot self-isolate because they lack income support or access to medical testing or treatment.

We risk prolonging this crisis if we ignore what is happening to over a million people currently living in Australia.

Kristina Keneally

I actually agree with the Prime Minister when he says that temporary visa holders in Australia should go home during this health crisis... but the reality is they can't go home right now.

Borders are shut and international airlines are shutdown.

We risk prolonging the Covid-19 crisis if we ignore the 1.1 million people in Australia on temporary visas... because a virus does not check someone's visa status before it infects them.

Quando gli ho chiesto il motivo, mi ha detto che, adesso che non lavora, vorrebbe risarcire con il lavoro volontario il paese che tanto bene l’ha accolto. Mi ha fatto effetto».
