Refugees Destitution Appeal

Positive Action in Housing’s Emergency Hardship Fund assists destitute asylum-seekers who are barred from "recourse to public funds" in Glasgow, London - the main areas of asylum dispersal - and elsewhere in Scotland and the UK where demand arises. In 2017/18, the Fund needs to raise and distribute at least £50,000 in crisis payments. The Fund accepts online referrals from 300 caseworkers from refugee/migrant organisations on behalf of destitute refugees and asylum seekers.  We offer free shelter, signposting, proactive casework and crisis grants for food, travel and baby provisions. This gives a breathing space for families and their lawyers and caseworkers to lift them out of a crisis situation. "Refused" asylum seekers have no right to housing, jobs or state support. Since September 2015, we have arranged over 41,369 nights of shelter. Our annual winter surgery gave crisis grants to 300 beneficiaries over 2 days. We anticipate greater demand this year, especially from the elderly, pregnant women, families and the sick. Any donation, no matter how small, is appreciated.

Every penny goes towards providing humanitarian relief for destitute refugees and asylum seekers. Donate here and click gift aid to add 25% to your donation. You can also set up a regular monthly payment via your internet banking . for more info go to www.paih.org/donate . Note: Any gift aid raised rom this appeal will go towards our core humanitarian work. Thank you for supporting this appeal.
