Asylum Seeker Resource Centre
Asylum seekers have difficulty prioritising their foot health given that other
necessities demand focus. Nonetheless, the importance for asylum seekers to
access Podiatry services and achieve optimum foot health is central towards
maintaining quality of life.
Since 2012 Footscape has been providing pro bono Podiatry clinical
services for members of the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre. The Asylum Seeker Resource Centre has become the largest provider of aid, advocacy and health services for asylum seekers in Australia. During this period Footscape has concurrently sourced new footwear, new socks, orthotic devices and foot care kits to promote delivery of care at no cost to members.
