Refugee Women of Bristol (RWoB) is the only multi-ethnic, multi-faith organisation which specifically targets the needs of refugee women in Bristol, we are directly governed by women of the refugee and asylum-seeking community. We provide services to disenfranchised groups over and above the generic category of ‘refugee’, and routinely reach cohorts of women that other service-providers overlook or are unable to access.

RWoB was established in 2003 as an unincorporated association and registered charity 1135727. Since then, the organisation has grown significantly and wanted to meet the increasing demands of its activities, finance and members.

RWoB became a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) on 20th February 2017. We are in the process of closing our current charity Refugee Women of Bristol and transferring our assets, money and staff to the new legal entity. From Monday 2nd October 2017 we are operating under Refugee Women of Bristol, charity number 1171683.
