Friends of Brass
Friends of Brass is a team of dedicated supporters who want to help Brass
in its mission to empower, inform and support refugees and asylum seekers
and to protect their rights.
We are recruiting!
Join Friends of Brass if:
You want to make a difference
You don’t have time to volunteer for us on a regular basis
You are up for the challenge of raising £100 in one year for a Brass project
You can help tell your friends and others about the work of Brass
You can join as an individual or a group, such as book club, school or workplace.
Each year we will identify Brass projects that will benefit directly from Friends of Brass
contributions. This year we want to support the new allotment project and buy equipment and cover transport costs. This project will give refugees and asylum seekers a sanctuary to work in, away from daily stresses and the trauma they may have faced. It will also give them a focus, a chance to learn new skills and to nurture plants that may keep them closer to the homes they have left.
