Bryson Intercultural (formerly the Multi-Cultural Resource Centre)

For a growing number of people from across the world, Bryson Intercultural is the welcoming face of Northern Ireland. We make a positive impact  on the lives of black and minority people and their families by helping them adjust to and cope with their new lives in Northern Ireland. 

Since May 2007, Bryson Intercultural’s Asylum Advice team has provided a reception service for newly arrived asylum seekers, as well as an independent advice and advocacy service.Our service is for asylum seekers supported by the National Asylum Support Service (NASS) as well as successful asylum applicants who need help in accessing mainstream services and accommodation. Our advice work covers a range of specialist topics including access to NASS support, the asylum application process, welfare benefits, employment and housing. We also advise clients facing problems such as racial harassment, domestic violence and destitution.

Bryson Intercultural is at the forefront of the response to the emerging needs of the Roma community. We are dedicated to building good relations between the Roma community and the host community. By supporting the development of cross-agency working groups Bryson has highlighted the needs of the Roma community and shaped strategic responses.
