Can you help?

Our work depends on donations.

Every week we give out free clothing, toiletries, food, household essentials and vouchers to around 100 asylum seekers and refugees.

Without the amazing generosity of our supporters we could not provide a fraction of the help that our clients so desperately need.

Your donation can help ease their plight:

  • £10 will buy a set of underwear for one adult
  • £25 will buy a pair of shoes for a child starting school
  • £50 will buy the toiletries we need each week
  • £100 will buy half the food we need each week

You can donate securely online – visit our Just Giving page here or click on the button below.

You can make a one-off or regular donation, and you can also give anonymously if you wish.

Thank you so much!
