COVID-19 UPDATE: Bridges for Communities has remained active throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. Although we have had to adapt some of our programmes, we are continuing to provide support and are re-launching programmes as the government's guidelines allow. Our Craft Collective are currently producing FACE MASKS FOR SALE.

Bridges for Communities connects people of different cultures and faiths, enabling them to build friendships and grow in their understanding of one another.

Through these connections and experiences, we seek to inspire and equip people to become active agents of change, building a more cohesive society where people are better neighbours, newcomers feel more welcome and cities are more inclusive.

About Bridges

Get Involved With


Peace Feast

Sharing a meal together gives people from different cultures and faiths the opportunity to meet and build friendships.


Sharing Festivals

We bring people together around religious festivals and feasts — like Ramadan and Christmas — to break down barriers and challenge stereotypes.



This project provides one-to-one support for refugees and asylum-seekers in Bristol, who may be isolated, struggling or new to the city.


Bristol Welcome Events

We organise special events and days out for refugees and asylum seekers, giving them a break from the challenges of daily life.


Cultural Exchange Trips

We organise trips to connect people in the UK and the Middle East, facilitating opportunities for perceptions to be changed and for friendships to be built.



We provide cultural awareness training for working crossculturally, and refugee support training for groups working with refugees, asylum-seekers, and vulnerable migrants.


We enable refugees to take a step towards employment by tutoring people in conversational Arabic.
