Humanity Australia is a registered not-for-profit organisation that is dedicated to improving the opportunities, education, life skills, self-esteem and employment prospects of migrants, refugees and asylum seekers within Australia.

Based in Sydney but working Australia-wide, our objective is to assist and support new Australians as they settle into life in their new country. We aim to work with both government and community funding to provide support and welfare services to distressed individuals and families.
