Human Rights For All were fortunate to receive a Capacity Grant from Uniting's Innovative Community Grants fund recently, which has enabled us to invest in some additional laptops and equipment. This assists us in our work by providing extra resources to our staff and paralegals, which gives us extended capacity to provide legal services to vulnerable asylum seekers and refugees in detention. HR4A would like to thank Uniting ICGF very much for this grant, and also our ongoing supporters at Gordon Pymble Uniting Church for everything that they have done and continue to do to assist us in our work.
