In October 2005, the ASHRAM (Agencies Supporting the Housing of Refugees, Asylum Seekers and Migrants) Network, a branch of Queensland Shelter, comprising a network of housing providers, tenancy groups and support agencies released a paper entitled "ASHRAM‟s Call to Action". The paper outlined the many challenges faced by refugees, asylum seekers and newly arrived migrants when they arrived in Australia, in particular their right to secure affordable and accessible housing.

The next meeting will be on a Wednesday – November 18 - with the main focus to be on workshopping the results to date from ECCQ’s Stronger Tenancy Project, in conjunction with the outcomes and recommendations from the CALD tenancy forum organised by the Tenants’ Union back in June. These tie together some of the major issues identified as priorities by ASHRAM.

The Ashram branch worked closely with Anna McCormack, the Ethnic Communities Council of Queensland, and the Residential Tenancies Authority to hold the “Towards Sustainable Tenancy Education for Diverse Communities” forum in April. The forum examined the one-off nature of project funding and stated the need for continuance of pilots such as the Community Partners in Tenancy Project (CPIT) where five CALD workers were trained and accredited in tenancy advice and advocacy and community education in partnership with the Tenants Union of Queensland. One graduate, Anzo James, now works as a full time tenancy advice worker at Acacia Ridge TAAS. Read more »

The ASHRAM mailing list contains 61 agencies that work with CALD groups. Read more »
