Come and hear from a mother seeking asylum

October 2017


Thanks to your support the Early Years Project is able to meet the needs of a growing number of children and parents.  Each week the Early Years Team welcome new families and several of these children are coming regularly this autumn.  As well as the children belonging to our group, we are also facilitating children moving into nursery places and school through our partnership work with a local Children's Centre.  

One Mum recently reflected “My daughter loves the project. She sings us the songs she has learnt at home.”  

One of the project's regular volunteers noted the positive impact that the project has upon the children’s lives, “Within a matter of weeks, you can see their confidence growing, their sense of security returning. It is very moving.”

Tomorrow BRR will hold its Annual General Meeting at the Assisi Centre Community Hall in Bristol.  Our Fundraising and Communications Manager will share her experience of the crowdfunding campaign and one of the mothers who uses the Early Year Project will share her experience of how it has helped her and her child.

We warmly invite you to join us.

Whilst we celebrate the achievements of the last year we also look to the sustainability of the different services BRR offers to asylum seekers and refugees.  We know that many people who contributed to the crowdfunding campaign support BRR in a wide range of other ways (volunteering, governance, donating items, organising fundraisers and giving regularly).  If you would like to support in one of these ways but are not at the moment please get in touch.  If you would like to set up a regular donation to the Early Years Project visit our Localgiving page and leave a comment to ask for the donation to go towards the EYP.

Thank you so very much

from the EYP staff team, volunteers and parents
