Also known as Derby Refugee Advice Centre (DRAC), Derby Refugee Forum was established in 2002. We are currently working in the premises of the Bosnia and Herzegovina Centre.

We are a registered charity run by volunteers.

We offer support and signposting for those seeking sanctuary in the UK. We do this through our drop-in advice sessions every Tuesday and Thursday, through our English and maths classes and through the variety of workshops, trips and activities we have on offer.

We aim to provide a positive, respectful environment where people can get the help they need.
