Young People’s Project

Providing legal advice, casework and wellbeing support for young people with insecure immigration status

For Young People:

BRR’s Young People’s Immigration Project work directly with young people aged 16-25 with insecure immigration status. Our service is open to asylum seekers and young people with other immigration issues.

We offer OISC Accredited Legal Advice to our clients to identify their immigration status, their rights and entitlements; to identify options for resolving immigration issues; to ensure that young people understand their case and assist if there they are unhappy with their solicitor.

If young people are in need of additional support we offer 1-1 Casework to ensure they are able to engage in their case and to Advocate for resolution of their immigration status.

Our monthly Wellbeing Group, facilitated by an experienced therapist from the Traumatic Stress Service, brings young people together to learn tools and techniques for supporting their mental health.

If you would like more information or to make a referral, please contact Chloe Woods on chloe@bristolrefugeerights.org 

For Professionals:

We work closely with partner organisations and are proud to host Bristol’s Young People’s Immigration Forum – a quarterly meeting for statutory and voluntary agencies who support young people with insecure immigration status.

The Young People’s Immigration Project has developed a Partnership with Bristol City Council’s Through Care Team to support their work with Looked After Children and Care Leavers who are subject to immigration control.

Our bi-monthly Support Group for Professionals provides a safe space for social workers, foster carers and other professionals working closely with young people subject to immigration control to receive peer support with the guidance of an experience therapist from The Trauma Foundation South West
