BIASAN (Bradford Immigration and Asylum Seekers Support and Advice Network) have an open constitution which is based on equality, partnerships, and treating people with understanding and respect. There is a management committee where people are invited to add information or raising awareness on topics, projects, information which helps BIASAN. We are all equal in how we work and in how BIASAN is run.

We have a women’s club which runs 1-4pm every Thursday and also a drop-in session from 4-7pm every Thursday. There are 2 English classes, Wednesday and Thursday from 4-6pm. The Women’s club includes a child friendly session and arts and crafts activities too.

“I have really enjoyed the sewing  project, it has helped me develop skills I never had, and develop my social skills. I have enjoyed mixing with new people and sharing with them. I feel great and loved making art.”

We are part of Arts Together because we love being part of a community with similar passions and aspirations. It’s great to connect with like-minded souls.
