We support asylum seekers with issues including: understanding the asylum process, getting legal advice, accessing housing and financial support, accessing healthcare and education.

We work with partners to support new refugees to access housing and prevent homelessness when leaving asylum support.

Our Advice Team works with people have not yet been granted Refugee Status or Humanitarian Protection.

Our Welcome Services such as the social space, early years setting and classes are open to both asylum seekers and new refugees in the Bristol area.

Our Young People’s Immigration Project offers support to young people in the care of Bristol City Council Children’s Services with insecure immigration status. We also support young people with age disputes, challenging the age allocated to them by the Home Office

About Us

We run services for asylum seekers and new refugees to get the help they need. We use early action to avoid crises. This includes empowering our members to take action for themselves, building skills and confidence.

We are anti-racist and will not accept discrimination due to race, religion, sexuality, gender, disability, age, ethnicity nor any other type of bullying or harassment.

We want a society where refugees, asylum seekers and migrants are welcomed. A society where everyone’s rights and entitlements are respected.

We run safe, welcoming drop-in sessions with education opportunities and childcare, alongside advice and casework. A holistic set of services addressing many of the issues faced by asylum seekers: social isolation, disempowerment, homelessness and insecure accommodation, poor mental and physical health.

We work with partners to increase our impact, both in delivering services and contributing to local and national campaign work and policy advocacy on issue affecting asylum seekers and refugees.
