Do you feel strongly about empowering refugees and asylum seekers?

Do you share our belief that effective partnership and collaboration will increase our impact?


Bristol Refugee & Asylum Seeker Partnership (BRASP)

BRASP was set up just before the Covid-19 pandemic and is an innovative partnership of 16 Bristol organisations. Its vision is that all refugees and asylum seekers enjoy healthy and fulfilling lives in Bristol, have a voice and their needs are met by an effective, unified and sustainable sector.

The partnership comprises: Aid Box Community, Ashley Community Housing, Borderlands, Bridges for Communities, Bristol City of Sanctuary, Bristol Hospitality Network, Bristol Refugee Festival, Bristol Refugee Rights, Bristol Signing Support Group, British Red Cross, The Haven, Project Mama, Refugee Council, Refugee Women of Bristol, Southern Brooks and Trauma Foundation South West. 


The partnership has secured 12 months’ funding to build on its work during the pandemic and further develop Lived Experience Leaders, combined services and protocols.


BRASP is seeking three people to join the team for 12-month fixed term contracts. We are looking for 3 individuals with good communication skills, commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion, and excellent interpersonal skills.
