Refugee and Asylum Seeking Women's ProjectThe Law Centre started a new free legal project in April 2013 to add to its existing legal aid and advice services. The aim of the project is to give expert legal advice to refugee and asylum seeking women in Bristol and the South West. This includes advice in areas which have been excluded by recent cutbacks in legal aid.
The project currently runs drop-in advice sessions at the Malcolm X Centre with Bristol Refugee Rights, and across Bristol with other partner agencies.
You can contact the project on: 0117 916 7720 or preferably email at
Please note that although appointments can be made by email, we cannot give immigration advice by email.
This project is funded by Comic Relief. Immigration training We can provide training for other agencies and community groups on immigration issues by arrangement.
