The Brisbane Refugee and Asylum Seeker Support Network

The BRASS Network is aware that services giving support to refugees and asylum seekers are over-stretched. We also recognise that government asylum seeker policy continues to change rapidly and presents significant challenges for those who are committed to human rights and justice.

Our aim

We are committed to:

  • Fostering better communication and collaboration between refugee support agencies and between these agencies and various groups within the community
  • Identifying and meeting the needs of asylum seekers and refugees where there are service gaps and limited resources
  • Engaging greater voluntary involvement by community members in supporting asylum seekers and refugees
  • Advocating better support for refugees and asylum seekers and just, fair and humane government policies
  • Educating the wider community about refugees and asylum seekers, their personal stories of persecution and flight and the impact of government policies on them when they seek Australia’s protection.

Who are we

The BRASS Network brings together representatives of refugee support agencies, refugee communities, advocacy groups, church and community groups and individuals interested in supporting refugees and asylum seekers.

Our meetings

The BRASS Network generally meets on the last Friday of each month from February to November from 10 AM to 12 noon at Justice Place, 5 Abingdon Street, Woolloongabba. If you are interested in coming to a BRASS Network meeting, please make contact with us to check the date of the next meeting.
