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.
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.
We run weekly (term time only) ESOL classes, run by our volunteers. Our lessons focus on teaching practical language skills that women can use in their daily lives, for example going to the doctors, shopping or applying for jobs. English language and life skills support continues to be a primary activity at our weekly drop-in.
