© 2021 Refugee Women of Bristol Registered Charity Number 1171683
Refugee Women of Bristol (RWoB) is the only multi-ethnic, multi-faith organisation that 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 and rom Monday 2nd October 2017 we are operating under the same name, Refugee Women of Bristol with a new charity number 1171683.
Each year Refugee Women of Bristol supports approximately 300 refugee and asylum-seeking women and their pre-school children.
Through our work we aim to: Raise the educational and economic status of refugee and asylum seeking women; provide access to English language learning, volunteering and training opportunities in order to increase the ability of service users to gain employment and support themselves and reduce isolation and improve confidence.
At our drop in centre we see women from all over the world, including Somalia, Sudan, Iraq, Iran, Syria, Gambia and many others countries. All women from a refugee or asylum seeking background are welcome.
