Early Years

Support for Families

Bristol Refugee Rights members with children can request support with a range of issues.

Creche Placements – for children from 8 months – 4 years old

We run a creche on Wednesday between 9:45 – 11:35am for parents attending ESOL classes.

We run a creche on Thursday mornings between 10:00 – 11:50 am for parents who want to attend the Welcome Hall and other workshops such as cooking, yoga and art.

The Early Years Project Team can help also with:

  • Getting help with food support through food clubs and food banks

  • Seeking specialist support for parents and children
  • Connecting families with local children’s centres
