Immigration legislation which puts forward drastic changes to support for asylum seekers, and which has major implications for human rights and discrimination law is set to reach the statute book soon. We aim to explore how these changes will impact on children and families, on access to housing and financial support, and on the risk of being detained. We will also discuss the possible consequences of destitution, homelessness, and access to health and education.
