The Bridge Plus+ provides information, advice and advocacy services to Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (B.A.M.E.) communities in Norwich and surrounding areas.
We offer one-to-one, face-to-face support on a wide range of issues including welfare benefits, housing, employment, immigration (Level 1), and equality issues. Our advisers work at casework level (NCAN Tier 3 Level).
We also offer issue-based advocacy to our service users, as well as practical help to enable them to access local services and fill in forms.
Other activities available include help with job search (e.g. CV writing) and community events (monthly community lunches).
We are currently funded to offer interpreting support (via video link or telephone) to service users who cannot communicate in English.
