We are a charity based in Bristol that exists to work with refugees, asylum seekers and other vulnerable migrants to help them from exclusion to belonging.
The charity was founded following a long history of the parish at St. Nicholas of Tolentino RC Church providing support to the local community in need. To find out more about the history of Borderlands click here.
We support refugees, asylum seekers and those with insecure immigration status to alleviate poverty and hardship.
Our values are warmth, sharing, dignity and respect for everyone
Our mission is to serve the disadvantaged and marginalised, focusing on asylum seekers, refugees and those with insecure immigration status, primarily in the wider Bristol area
We have a vision for a world where refugees and asylum seekers can seek sanctuary and justice, can make full use of their talents and abilities, feel valued for their contributions, and build worthwhile lives.

We have significantly adapted our services to our members due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic:
Our Drop-in will continue to run as restrictions allow. Our Drop in provides food parcels and a hot meal every Tuesday from 11am to 2pm. We are also working with the Red Cross to provide financial support to those in most need.
Our Mentoring Project will continue to run as restrictions allow.
Our English Classes will continue to run as restrictions allow.
Our Office Team will be mainly working from home. Please if you have a general enquiry email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Marta, our Project Administrator on 07925133225
We are taking necessary steps to ensure our staff, volunteers and members are safe during these activities.
Bristol asylum support services
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. Please see below information on the services offered by other organisations in Bristol.
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.
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. Please support our work by donating here.
Warmth, Sharing, Dignity, Respect
