Member Consultation Group

Every month a group of asylum seeker and refugee members of BRR meet at the Welcome Centre, and consider matters of policy and direction at the request of the staff team and the Board of Trustees.

We encourage new members to join the group to ensure that the group is well attended. The group is an important organ of decision making within our governance structure.

BRR Friends 

As part of our constitution and governance structure, we encourage supporters to become a Friend (a.k.a a legal member) of Bristol refugee Rights. Becoming a legal member of BRR in this way is open to any individual aged 18 years and over, who lives or works in the area of we serve and who is interested in promoting the objects of the charity.

As a Friend you will receive an invitation to the Annual General Meeting, where you can vote on resolutions and elect Trustees; in this way you will helping to steer the direction and strategic aims of the organisation. Becoming a legal member costs a minimum subscription cost of £12 per year.
You can become a Friend of BRR at any time, and membership is ratified at the AGM. Please download the Legal Members Application Form and Gift Aid Form; completed forms should be sent to the BRR office.
