About

A Dip a Day in December - I will be swimming outdoors every single day in December - rain or shine, hail or snow!
Destitute Asylum Seekers Huddersfield helps people who have fled their countries in terror but are still waiting to be accepted as refugees. Due to strict Home Office stipulations, asylum seekers have no or extremely limited financial support.
DASH runs bi-weekly drop-ins offering support in the form of: casework, English classes, a hot meal, assistance with accommodation/health/education, translation and food parcels. Most importantly, drop-ins provide a crucial opportunity for asylum seekers to escape some of the fear and isolation of their lives. Last year DASH helped 42 destitute asylum seekers get Leave To Remain, assisting them in rebuilding their lives and giving them hope for their futures.

£5 would buy a hot meal & food parcel

£10 would cover a week's destitution payment 

£20 would  pay for a week's accommodation

Your swims are inspiring and you're campaigning for a group of people who are denied any state support. Brilliant work Angela.
