Refugee Women of Bristol (RWoB) is the only multi-ethnic, multi-faith organisation which specifically targets the needs of refugee women in Bristol, they are directly governed by women of the refugee and asylum-seeking community. They provide services to disenfranchised groups over and above the generic category of ‘refugee’, and routinely reach cohorts of women that other service-providers overlook or are unable to access.

Womankind is an established charity that is run by women for women. They help hundreds of women every year to improve their mental health and well-being so they can experience a better quality of life. They recognise that the roots of our difficulties are often linked to personal life histories. They also recognise that the social and political environment in which we live affects our mental health. They work with women to understand individual situations and help them get the support they need.
