Winter Destitution Appeal - Help Refugees

The Lifeline Service offers shelter, crisis grants, food and help to destitute refugees and asylum seekers. Refused refugees have no right to housing, jobs or state support. New refugees are routinely left destitute despite being entitled to support. As well as humanitarian aid, we proactively help people to resolve a crisis and rebuild their lives. The government’s decision to force refugees to travel to Liverpool to prove their cases means we are giving travel grants to those without funds. In 2017, we gave over £42,000 in crisis grants to destitute people from mainly Syria, Eritrea, Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, Palestine and Yemen. Since September 2015, we have arranged over 40,000 nights of free shelter in the homes of volunteer hosts in London, Glasgow and Edinburgh and elsewhere. However, there is a growing destitution crisis. During the freezing winter months, we are distributing crisis grants to hundreds of vulnerable children, women and men. Our Christmas surgery in Glasgow will see over 500 people.  We expect a greater demand from the elderly, pregnant women, families and the sick. With your help we can do more. We need you to 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.
