BRASS is currently seeking to recruit a Fundraiser

 

Bedfordshire Refugee and Asylum Seeker Support (BRASS) supports refugees and asylum seekers in Bedfordshire. 

 

We provide free Drop in Advice sessions on many areas including immigration and employment and also provide free one-to-one tutoring, and hold small classes, in English and Life Skills.

 

We also arrange a variety of social activities for our clients to help with feelings of isolation.

 

We also arrange events particularly during Refugee Week to show the plight of refugees to the general public and school children.

 

We are currently looking for a fundraiser to replace our current one, who will be retiring in December after many years with us.

 

We would need someone who is able to work 21 hours per month, at an hourly rate to be negotiated. We have long, ongoing funding relationships with the Lottery nationally and the Harper Trust locally as well as a number of smaller grant providers.

 

If you think this is a role that would interest you, and you feel passionately about helping us please do get in touch with brian@brass27b.org.

A big thank you to everyone who contributed to our most successful ever Christmas party...

The Syrian Vulnerable Persons Resettlement Scheme (SVPRS) is a United Nations programme, administered in the UK by the Home Office. The scheme is intended to resettle families who are refugees from the Syrian conflict, including Syrians and other nationalities. Under this scheme, Bedford Borough Council has agreed to accept and resettle 20 such families. BRASS works with the Borough Council to implement the scheme. The general and primary objective of BRASS is to enable these families to integrate themselves into the social, economic and cultural life of Bedford.
