AID BOX COMMUNITY
providing Support, Supplies and Sanctuary to Refugees and Asylum Seekers
Our vision is a world where every refugee and asylum seeker is given the opportunity to start a new life.
Our mission is to uphold the basic rights of refugees and asylum seekers by providing practical aid, support and direction and, by doing so, making their daily lives a little easier.
We provide Bristol's asylum seekers & refugees with a safe haven to relax and socialise as well as access our 'Free Shop' where they can choose from a huge variety of high quality donated clothes, shoes, household items, furniture and other essentials, that will help them live more comfortably as they settle in Bristol.
Why we do what we do
We believe all refugees and asylum seekers should have access to practical, useful help and advice to aid them in the creation of their new lives.
Aid Box began as a group of volunteers who responded to the humanitarian crisis in the refugee camps of Northern France. We simply wanted to supply practical supplies and help so that people had basic access to food, shelter and advice.
We have now entered a new phase that aims to aid social and economic integration of the people who are seeking sanctuary in the UK.
To us, it’s all about providing and enabling the first steps towards a new life.
We cant do this without you: Want to help? Whether you want to come and help sort donations, work in the free shop, put your skills to good use, donate money or supplies, or hold a fundraiser, get in touch and we’ll help make it happen.
