    Our mission is to welcome asylum seekers and refugees in Bristol. Together we create a place of solidarity and trust. We challenge the injustices that we experience and witness in the UK. Learning from each other we develop partnerships and links with the wider community to promote equality of opportunity for asylum seekers and refugees.

    Bristol Refugee Rights aims to:

    • To improve both the physical and mental wellbeing of asylum seekers and refugees through the activities we provide and promote.
    • To reduce the impact of poverty and destitution for asylum seekers and refugees in Bristol.
    • To support asylum seekers and refugees to engage with the wider community and to speak out; raising awareness and influencing decision-making.
