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

What We Do



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.

Bristol School Linking

Bringing children together from different backgrounds together through classroom connections.



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.

Walk With Me

Supporting the mental health and wellbeing of refugees through exercise with local volunteers.


Cultural Training

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

Craft Collective

Equipping refugee and asylum seeking women with sewing skills and building community.



    Regular giving enables us to plan ahead for Bridges activities and growth.
