Do you really need your winter fuel allowance?

If not, why not donate it to us? We guarantee it will have a positive effect on the wellbeing of many refugees and asylum seekers feeling the cold this winter.


Help for Households

In response to increasing prices and the pressures around the cost of living, the Government has launched the ‘Help for Households campaign‘ to raise awareness of the support available amongst those that need it most and help build consumer confidence. The campaign aims to explain the different schemes available (including new, exceptional one-off payments and existing benefits and schemes), and making public aware of the actions that government – and businesses – are taking. Besides the Government support via benefits etc, the webpage includes a link to discounts and offers that may be helpful.



Would you like to volunteer and change the lives of local people? We have some exciting volunteer roles (see below), including interpreters, English teachers, caseworkers, as well as those with fundraising, media and IT skills!
