Why we need your help

We welcome refugees into work with one-to-one employment advice and guidance, education, and training. However, sometimes refugees need an extra hand with costs to be able to take the next step in their career, for example a qualification, exams, professional memberships, driving lessons etc.

That’s where our grants come in.

Our grants are a simple and effective way to remove a big financial barrier for the refugees we support, but the cost-of-living crisis means they are more in demand than ever before.

We need your help to fill the pot.

How are my donations doubled?

Over the summer we worked hard to source our “match pot.” This is the money that is used to double your donations. Through the generosity of a charitable trust and a philanthropist, we have £20,000 in our match pot.

Every time you donate, money will be taken from the match pot to double your donation, up to £40,000. Once we hit our target of £40,000 any additional donations will still be counted (and very gratefully received), they just won’t be doubled.

Every pound you can give will make a difference, and support refugees to take a step towards a new life. ​
