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.

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 in the past have met regularly.
HOWEVER DUE TO THE CURRENT CORONAVIRUS SITUATION MONTHLY MEETINGS HAVE BEEN DISRUPTED. A CHANGE OF VENUE IS ALSO UNDER CONSIDERATION.
