Barnet Refugee Service is pleased to announce the adoption of our new working name
New Citizens’s Gateway
Still operating from Barnet, we will be supporting refugees and asylum seekers across the broader
geography of England and Wales.
This new working name reflects our continued vision of supporting the integration of refugees into
UK life and culture as equal members of our society and helping make the asylum process a more
humane and fair one for asylum seekers.
Due to Coronavirus outbreak, our offices are closed until further notice but we will continue to support refugees and asylum seekers by adapting services for the phone and online.
All our staff are working from home so you can contact them Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm by calling the below dedicated phone numbers for different projects:

Why Barnet Refugee Service
BRS aims to create a society that respects and values difference between people and sees this difference as an asset where refugees and asylum seekers recognise themselves and are recognised by others as human beings of equal status. We are fully committed to equality of opportunity and taking positive action to fight discrimination in all areas of our work.
Our unique and inspiring “Integrated Holistic Model of Support” is developed by us based on our own research, evaluation, experience, a model which develops mental health, improves community cohesion and increases the life chances of vulnerable refugees and asylum seekers.
We have extensive experience of successfully delivering services in a safe, confidential and friendly environment and are uniquely positioned to meet the needs of our clients.
