About This Project

About the Brigidine Asylum Seekers Project

The Brigidine Asylum Seekers Project (BASP) is a Melbourne-based initiative working for a humane, just, and inclusive approach for people seeking asylum in Australia. The Project works with, and for, people seeking asylum both in detention and in the community. Concerned and compassionate women and men across cultures and generations contribute to the work of the Project.

BASP aims to:

  • Provide hospitality and practical support for people seeking asylum;
  • Actively network with like-minded individuals and groups who are working for justice for asylum seekers;
  • Promote advocacy for the rights of people seeking asylum;
  • Engage in education about asylum seekers’ issues.
