Welcome to RASSA

We offer pro bono migration assistance to asylum seekers, in South Australia, who are eligible to apply for a Temporary Protection Visa (TPV) or a Safe Have Enterprise Visa (SHEV) under the Federal Government’s “fast track” process. These applicants are often referred to as the “legacy caseload”. They arrived in Australia by boat between 13 January 2012 and 31 December 2013.

We are the only Community Legal Centre in South Australia providing this type of assistance.


Refugee Week is Australia’s peak annual activity to raise awareness about the issues affecting refugees and celebrate the positive contributions made by refugees to Australian society.

Join us during Refugee Week for a Fundraiser Dinner at Africola.

Africola is Adelaide’s most original dining experience with a focus on food inspired by the Maghreb (North Africa). It is exclusively opened for RASSA during Refugee Week and providing an experience better than ever, being paired with Tushari Wines and Pirate Life Beer. 

Tickets are only $110.00 for 3 course feast and all you can drink!

Tickets are limited and can be purchased HERE


If you would like to register for our service, please got to our Referrals page. We can only accept those who have been invited to apply for a TPV or SHEV. If you are unsure when your invitation will arrive please click here to find out when your claims for asylum will be considered.


We need your help! As a non-for profit organisation, we rely on donations to ensure our work can be continued and expanded into the future. Your generosity will make an immediate difference in the lives of asylum seekers across South Australia.
