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.

Our hearts go out to all who have lost loved ones, homes and businesses during these floods and experiencing PSTD from the previous floods.
LETS has the ability for you to use your time, energy, skills and knowledge to earn units like you would cash, and spend your units like you would cash, to meet your needs, without cash! You keep track on the CES server.
By connecting with a caring community to meet every day needs even ones considered luxury, that allows you to contribute in a way you can, by helping others, increases your overall health and sense of belonging.
Trading is the energy driving LETS – not the hoarding of units, so that is why going into debt when you join is equally encouraged because quite often when you join, what you badly need is blocking your ability to focus on anything else. There is always opportunities to earn units in LETS – it might be online services, hands on services, goods that no longer serve you, participating in working bees, a lift to appointments or dropping something off for someone.
So be brave and advertise your offer and wants, as it allows others to get to know you, help you with your need and become part of a supportive community!
You can start with a simple “extra pair of hands” offer and pay the once off joining fee, then start trading as soon as you receive your welcome letter email with your account number and password. Joining the Facebook Members Forum private group will allow you to talk out issues when you feel stuck for ideas, get support from the management committee etc. There is a public offers and wants Facebook group and FB page too. We are always looking for help with promotions etc – find us on Our Community Directory and oneplace.org.au.
