Donate to our Localgiving page and your donation will be doubled

If you donate to our Localgiving page over the next few days, your donation will be doubled!

The Localgiving Foundation has made £1m grant funding available for organisations like ourselves who are delivering critical work to support their local communities during COVID-19 – like ours in West London. Between today and 3rd November, Localgiving will match funds from donors who send us donations up to £75. Between 3rd and 9th November, donors can have their donations matched up to £5,000. We can benefit from an unlimited number of matched donations.

We’ll be using these matched funds to get local young refugees and asylum seekers WiFi access so they can keep up with their education. So many young people from refugee backgrounds in West London can’t afford home WiFi access and fall behind in their studies as a result, and this digital divide has been hugely exacerbated by the limited re-opening of local colleges this autumn. These funds are so needed. If you’re able to, please donate today: http://localgiving.org/charity/westlondonwelcome/
