BRISSC operates as a collective, with four key workers taking on management responsibilities. These are usually three support workers and one administration worker. Collective meetings take place weekly, and decisions are made by consensus.
The BRISSC collective are overseen by the Women's Community Aid Association (WCAA). WCAA is also sometimes referred to as 'Women's House' referring to the house that WCAA owns and hosts services within. WCAA was formed in 1974 as a feminist collective with a primary objective seeking 'the liberation of all women'. WCAA has over the past forty years provided space and resources for a series of enterprises, activities, services, and events. Today the WCAA collective is made up of approximately thirty active women who each bring a diversity of strengths. WCAA owns Women's House, the property within which BRISSC operates. WCAA meets monthly and oversees the operations of BRISSC together with a range of other current services and activities.
