Bayside Youth with Refugees is a group of young people based in the south-eastern suburbs of Melbourne mobilising the community to advocate for fair and compassionate treatment of refugees and people seeking asylum.

We stand in solidarity with the Boon Wurrung people of the Kulin Nation and acknowledge their right to land never ceded.   

We work to support and amplify the voices of refugees and people seeking asylum. We aim to create effective change through conversation and engagement with our local community.

We have hosted a number of in-person and virtual events including:

Stop and Dials for the #KidsoffNauru campaign

Phonebanking for the campaign against mandatory detention

Discussion groups and letter writing workshops


New members are always welcome!
