Blue Mountains Refugee Support Group was founded in 2001, twenty years ago. We are a group of ordinary Australians who remain united by the vision of a compassionate Australia where people seeking refuge and asylum are treated with justice and compassion. We are all volunteers. BMRSG has no particular religious or political affiliation except a commitment to common decency.

Due to COVID many refugees have lost their casual jobs. In 2021 we spent $209 000 on refugee support mostly on rent relief and food assistance.
