Make a Donation

One-off and Regular Donations

Every pound you give helps us to support vulnerable asylum seekers and refugees who might otherwise end up on the streets of Scotland.

Regular donations are really important to RST’s work. This type of donation creates a solid basis for our destitution grants. Knowing we have a set amount coming in each month really helps us to plan our work.

You can sign up to make regular donations through our LocalGiving page.

Alternatively you can download our donation form and send your donation or your signed Standing Order instruction to:

RST, Robertson House, 152 Bath Street, Glasgow, G2 4TB

However you choose to donate, don’t forget to complete the GiftAid form too to enable RST to claim a further 25% on your donations at no extra cost to you!

Thank you for your support.

Gift Aid – Making your donation tax efficient

Government tax breaks for charities mean that you can increase the value of your donation to the Refugee Survival Trust without paying a penny more. If you are a UK taxpayer, we can reclaim tax on all the donations you have made to us since 6 April 2000 and on any that you may make to us in the future, whether they be small or large, regular or one-off. All you have to do is complete and sign the GiftAid Declaration and send it to: RST, Robertson House, 152 Bath Street, Glasgow, G2 4TB.

Bus Pass Appeal

The Refugee Survival Trust’s bus pass scheme is a lifeline for destitute refugees and asylum seekers who cannot afford to buy their own tickets. Something as simple as access to public transport can be the reason that an individual is able to attend important meetings, go to the food bank, or even meet friends. Being mobile is crucial to the asylum application process and to integration into life in Scotland.

Every pound that is raised will go directly towards the cost of daily bus ticket vouchers for Glasgow and Clyde and Edinburgh and the Lothians, which cost us £6 each. Refugees and asylum seekers are eligible to receive the tickets if they have no resource to other funds; due to limited funds we give them a maximum of one bus ticket per week.

If you’d like your donation to go towards the Bus Pass Appeal please make a note on your form or donation page so we can allocate the funds to this appeal.
