We estimate there are 100 destitute asylum seekers living in Bristol, caught in the loopholes of the system- unable to work and unable to claim benefits. Without an income, these individuals can't find accommodation.
A growing number of people in Bristol are offering rooms in their home for the short-term accommodation of BHN members in need. BHN is able to support potential hosts in kindly sharing their home with someone who needs it, working with both parties to support the needs of everyone involved.
If you have a spare room and are interested in hosting, please contact us to discuss it further.
