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.
The Welcome Centre is closed next week for Easter Holidays.
We are CLOSED on Wednesday 17th, Thursday 18th, and Friday 19th of April 2019
