Members put the wheels on BrisLETS – what do you want to see happening and how can you help achieve it?
The BrisLETS Community Exchange Incorporated Association facilitates increasing members’ quality of life and material circumstances, through trading their life experience, goods, and services, to meet other members’ needs.
We aim to create a safe, inclusive, and diverse community of individuals, businesses, and groups, using the Australian Community Exchange Server, and units, as an alternative currency to dollars.
- Everyone of all abilities, in all seasons of life, can contribute to society, using LETS.
- Community is more important than commerce.
- BrisLETS builds community by fostering shared values and processes.
- LETS units enable people to trade goods and services for mutual benefit, without the artificial constraints of national currencies.

Using resources from many areas
LETS has been the game changer for those struggling to meet basic needs
Many local support groups are popping up as families affected for the long term, struggle to make changes without the income!
BrisLETS has 31 years of experience of caring and sharing to support members to tap into unvalued resources to earn what they can’t afford, so they can save their cash for the essentials! The online platform makes it very easy!
Being unemployed assumes you are powerless with no hope. BrisLETS gives you resources and hope. Many finding LETS, are able to branch out into areas that they enjoy but didn’t have the cash to develop – they find the energy to develop new ventures that can take them back to paid employment, because their immediate pressures are being taken care of.
You can start with a simple “extra pair of hands” offer and pay the once off joining fee. Joining the Facebook Members Forum will allow you to talk out issues when you feel stuck or get support from the management committee .
