About Bradford Resource Centre

“Resources for democracy” is our slogan. Bradford Resource Centre and Community Statistics Project (BRC) is a voluntary and community sector (VCS) organisation managed by an elected group of representatives of community based organizations

BRC’s aim is to increase the effectiveness and capacity of community and campaign groups through the provision of training, information, organisational support, reprographic and other facilities.  Our services include a community issues based library; training in information and research, welfare rights and organisational development; meeting space; access to IT and economical printing.  We are well utilised by groups and individuals representing a wide range of community concerns and as well as servicing existing organisations we have helped initiate new groups and networks.




Since it was set up in 1979, BRC has developed a reputation for being accessible and welcoming to a wide range of small community groups, particularly those who are excluded or suffering discrimination and those that aim to express the voice of such communities to the Council, local business interests and other local decision maker. 

Over the years, BRC working in partnership with others has taken the lead in launching a variety of innovative VCS projects such as BIASAN (the support and campaign network for local refugees and migrant workers), the Bradford Centre Against Unemployment, Bradford Occupational Health Project (providing information advice and support on hazards at work to local people and local trade union branches), the schools and youth centres anti-racist project, the Advice Work Training Project (training volunteers to undertake welfare rights advice), and more recently the Low Pay Project (research and legal advice on low pay and employment matters).
