Help us support newly arriving asylum-seeking people
At West London Welcome we directly support hundreds of newly-arriving asylum-seeking people who have made life-threatening journeys to reach safety, with our day centre, clothes, foodbank, technology, household items, English classes, legal advice clinics, social activities and community outings.
We are renewing our appeal for donations to continue our essential holistic work. Your gift will help us be ready to support new arrivals from Afghanistan whom we hope will arrive in West London very soon – we previously collaborated with our local council to support resettled Syrian families and look forward to starting this work again. Your support also helps us to assist Afghan asylum seekers already in our community who had to make their own life-threatening journeys here alone – as well as others from 40+ other countries who have fled traumatic life circumstances.
£50 provides our members with travel costs to get to solicitors or doctors
£100 buys two smartphones
£200 will allow us to provide shoes, socks, underwear and other essential clothing items.
Any donations, regular or one-off, are hugely appreciated. You can donate on our Localgiving page here: https://localgiving.org/HelpUsHelpNewArrivals
