We estimate there to be over 100 asylum seekers experiencing destitution in Bristol today.
BHN needs Host Families/Households to offer a place to stay to one of these.
There are currently 16 active households in Bristol hosting asylum seekers experiencing destitution in their homes. We urgently need to increase this number. BHN provides a link person to facilitate initial introduction, move on, troubleshooting and training. BHN also facilitates 2 monthly host feasts to which all in BHN are invited to have a meal together and for mutual support
BHN needs men to live-in as hosts in the 12 bedroom house.
We are always looking for men who want to give 12-24 months to the all male house to live there facilitating community life (alongside 1 or 2 others) and sharing with the guys who live there. Rent is reduced to £200 all in; in exchange for 4-5 hours facilitation per week and a commitment to live with the other housemates in line with BHN’s values and vision.
