Winter Destitution Appeal - Help Refugees

The refugee crisis has not gone away. And during this time of unprecedented bad weather, we are experiencing increased demand to provide shelter and crisis payments while emergency caseworkers around the country assist families and lone individuals to resolve a crisis situation. Positive Action in Housing’s Lifeline Service offers shelter, crisis grants, food cards, bus passes and help to destitute refugees and asylum seekers who have no right to housing, jobs or state support. People are routinely being left destitute despite being entitled to support. As well as humanitarian aid, we proactively help people rebuild their lives. In 2019, we will distribute over £60,000 in crisis grants to destitute people from Syria, Eritrea, Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, Palestine and Yemen. We have arranged over 83,000 nights of free shelter in the homes of volunteer hosts in London, Glasgow & Edinburgh & elsewhere in the UK. We are assisting hundreds of vulnerable children, women and men to rebuild their lives using this approach. We expect a greater demand from the elderly, pregnant women, families and the sick. With your help we can do more. Please stand up for refugees and help protect them.

Any donation you give, no matter how small, is appreciated. Donate here, and add gift aid. Also set up a regular payment (standing order) via internet banking to Positive Action in Housing Ltd (SC027577). See www.paih.org/donate. Every penny goes towards providing emergency relief for destitute refugees in Glasgow, Edinburgh and London. Note: The gift aid from this appeal will support our core humanitarian work. For more info: email donate@positiveactionh.org. Thank you for your support.
