GET INVOLVED

 
We really need your help !

1,500 asylum seekers and refugees used the Centre between 2017-2018, an average of 80 visitors per drop-in day. 

We depend on grants and charitable donations.

Our annual budget is currently made up of individual donations, gifts in kind from Notre Dame de France church, grants from Trusts and Foundations.

But while we operate very economically our funds are continually stretched.

 

 
There are many different ways in which you can support our work.
