Castan Centre Appeal 

 


Human rights protect vulnerable people, and that’s why so much of our work helps to protect disadvantaged groups, including people with disability, the elderly, Indigenous Australians, refugees and asylum seekers.
 

We have contributed to many important human rights victories over the last two decades, a trend which continued in 2017. You can read about those contributions in our 2017 Impact Report. But for our annual appeal, we want to focus on the future.

On June 29, we will release a report with recommendations on how the Victorian Government can improve human rights for school students with disabilities. This 18-month project has the potential to transform the lives of a very marginalised group.

In the second half of this year, we will release another large-scale report on the use of force in detention, and conduct further research on mental health, disability and aged care with an aim to improving human rights for people in these groups.

Just as importantly, we will encourage public conversations about these issues. Our experts are regularly the first port of call for journalists, we reached over 5 million people through social media in 2017, and our videos were viewed over 90,000 times.

But we will only be able to achieve these goals if our appeal is a success. The Centre raises 75% of its income from outside the University, and our annual appeal is our biggest fundraising event of the year. The great thing is that the University's support enables every cent you donate to go to our programs. 

So please consider giving to our efforts to address disadvantage as part of this year’s annual appeal.
