Emergency hardship fund for destitute refugees

The Lifeline Service offers shelter, crisis grants, food & advice to destitute refugees. Refused refugees have no right to housing, jobs or state support. In 2015, we are distributing over £40,000 in crisis grants. In 2014, we gave over £28,000 and 505 nights of free shelter. Our Christmas surgery in 2014 saw 220 people over 2 days. A 12% increase on previous year. The surgery gave out 108 emergency payments; bus passes to 107 service users, 172 hygiene packs and 205 food packs. In response to the UK Government's decision to force refugees seeking asylum to travel to Liverpool to prove their claims, we are now issuing crisis grants for travel for those without funds. We anticipate a growing destitution crisis. Any donation you give, no matter how modest, is appreciated. Make a donation here, and add gift aid. Or set up a regular payment (standing order) via internet banking to pay Positive Action in Housing Ltd (SC027577). More info: email home@paih.org. Thank you.

Every penny provides humanitarian relief for destitute refugees. We need as many people as possible to support this appeal, no matter how modest the amount you give, it contributes to the greater good, so please show your support.
