Welcome Centre

The Bristol Refugee Rights Welcome Centre is a support service and social space for asylum seekers as well as new refugees. It is open at the Malcolm X Community Centre, 141 City Road, St Paul’s, Bristol, BS2 8YH (map) on:

Wednesday 10.00 am – 12.30 pm

Thursday 10.00 am – 3.00 pm

Friday 10.00 am – 12.30 pm

Please do not come to the Welcome Centre outside of these times.

Bristol Refugee Rights offer asylum seekers and new refugees:


Bristol Refugee Rights’ members are people currently in the UK asylum process or who have recently been granted refugee status. We call Bristol Refugee Rights’ service users “members” because we want to show our solidarity with them and we want them to feel that BRR belongs to them.

To become a member please come to the Welcome Centre and we will arrange a short interview to see how we can best support you. If you are eligible for membership you will be able to use our services, including the Welcome Centre. If you are not eligible we will try to refer you to other organisations that can help you.

Referral organisations should read the Membership Eligibility PDF.

In 11 years BRR has welcomed over 3000 members from over 60 different countries. Members visit BRR over 10,000 times throughout the year.
