Status Resolution Support Services (SRSS)

The SRSS program delivers state-wide support services to asylum seekers living in the community while they are seeking to resolve their immigration status with the Department of Home Affairs.

The level of SRSS service varies depending on client need. If eligible, the SRSS program may be able to support individuals and families with:

·         Case management services – provides support to SRSS clients in accessing relevant services, building life skills and independence, connecting to community and support for additional needs such as physical and mental health.

·         Financial support – the provision of financial assistance is determined and facilitated by the Department of Home Affairs.

To apply for SRSS our Case Managers will meet with potential clients to explain the process and eligibility for the SRSS program. If it is found they are likely to be eligible for the program Case Managers will support people to collect relevant documents and information, prepare application forms and submit to Department of Home Affairs for assessment. Please be aware that CatholicCare Tasmania does not make the decision as to whether an application is approved.


People must be living in the Australian community awaiting the resolution of a protection visa and be disadvantaged by one or more vulnerabilities such as significant health issues and crisis situations, or caring for children under 6 years. If you or someone you know might be eligible for this program please give us a call to discuss on 6278 1660.
