Caroline managed Bristol Refugee Rights for 7 years, overseeing a crucial period of organisational development and growth. Caroline stepped down from her role as Director in 2014 and is now BRR’s Patron.
“Bristol Refugee Rights plays a very large part in giving true meaning to Bristol’s status as a City of Sanctuary.
Members, volunteers, staff, trustees and friends work as a community to provide safety, to show solidarity and to engage together in actions that bring about genuine change in the experience of asylum seekers and refugees in Bristol. I am proud to have worked with BRR since 2006 and am honoured now to be a patron of this vibrant, strong and supportive organisation. “
