We are still here for asylum seekers and refugees in Bristol! Read on for more information.
We have significantly adapted our services to our members due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. It is with a heavy heart that we had to close our Drop-in in March 2020 until further notice.
We continue to provide food parcels and a hot meal by take-away available Tuesdays from 12:30pm - 1:30pm. We are taking necessary steps to ensure our staff, volunteers and members are safe during these activities. Our mentoring project will continue to run as restrictions allow. We are also working with the Red Cross to provide financial support to those in most need.
Many of our members already experience isolation and stress in their day to day lives and may struggle to self-isolate due to the lack of support they receive. We are improving our communications with members to help them access timely and accurate information about the risks, restrictions and opportunities for vaccination.
We are working with our refugee organisation partners in Bristol to provide a co-ordinated response to the impact of Covid-19 on our members.
Finally, we are so grateful for the support we have received during what has been such a very difficult time for many people. Thank you for standing with us and our members.
