What we do:

ABRISA is a Brazilian multicultural not for profit and incorporated grass roots community Incorporated in November 2002 with the aim of promoting connections of Portuguese speaking communities to Government and community services.

ABRISA’s office and its volunteering board of management run their volunteering effort during the year, delivering office support informing migrant about key areas of services and connecting them with other established professionals.

During the Pandemic, ABRISA channeled its voluntary resources to support our community with information and connection to services. Since 2018 ABRISA has been delivering support to Brazilians Seniors with information on government services, well-being and cultural activities, government services.

In Late 2019 ABRISA created Ausconnection a support program for our international students. The aim is to inform them about the life here in Melbourne and supporting them with industry. In 2020 we commenced our advocacy services for many international students and also residents in the areas of Health, Seniors, Connection to services and also Family matters.
