Buddies Refugee Support Group engages with refugees and asylum seekers living in South East Queensland - hosting picnics, exchanging visits and phone calls, offering practical support to new arrivals and their host families. They also provide asylum seekers with advice, and assistance to professional services, such as legal, medical and allied health services.

Highly active in the community, Buddies Refugee Support Group holds talks in schools, publishes weekly e-newsletters, lobbies politicians, and advocates in the press for the just and compassionate treatment of refugees and asylum seekers.

Passaport's collaboration with Buddies Refugee Support Group began in September 2016, with the presentation of the 'Passport' poem at the Sunshine Coast Readers and Writers Festival in Queensland.
