Welcome Centre

About the Welcome Centre

Our Welcome Centre is at the beating heart of BHN - a welcoming, intercultural space, where those with insecure immigration status and lived experience of being a refugee and/or asylum seeker can come and be part of a supportive, safe and cohesive community. The Welcome Centre is built around a delicious hot lunch, but also offers teas and coffees, creative activities (games, art, music, sewing), ESOL classes and even a barbershop! We also deliver additional services in partnership with Herbalists without Borders, Ashley Community Housing, SARI and the mental health charity MIND.


Our HELP Team (which offers case support work and advocacy) also meets with accommodated members at the Welcome Centre. 


If you would like to visit our Welcome Centre to learn more about what we do, then do contact BHN Operations Director Rachael Bee at rachaelb@bhn.org.uk to arrange a date and time.
