Grandmothers against Detention of Refugee Children

11.00am | July 03, 2018


Today I met with Grandmothers against Detention of Refugee Children. The Coalition Government has shown no interest in finding resettlement options for children in detention.

A Labor Government will work to improve the lives of those seeking refuge and asylum. We’ll end the secrecy on Manus and Nauru, double Australia’s annual refugee intake to 27,000 by 2025, create an independent children's advocate for children whose claims are being assessed, work to safely resettle refugees, and provide financial support to the UNHCR.
