There are many ways that you can support Buddies and contribute to the asylum seeker advocacy cause. Now more than ever, asylum seekers and refugees need our help.

Donate to Buddies

You can donate with either a one-off donation, or a regular subscription from as little as $1 per month.

Buddies is a Sunshine Coast group which advocates for just and compassionate treatment of refugees, consistent with the human rights standards which Australia has developed and endorsed.


We support policies towards refugees and asylum seekers that reflect respect, decency and traditional Australian generosity to those in need, while advancing Australia’s international standing and national interests.


We are an independent community group and meet regularly on a two monthly basis. Our next meeting will be  the AGM, to be held on Sunday 29 August at 11am at 'Connections on King', 2-10 Gloucestter Rd, Buderim. ALL WELCOME
