Displaced people who are seeking international protection in the UK are at risk of becoming homeless and destitute at various points in their asylum journey. We are in the right place at the right time to help people at their most vulnerable.
Please help RST to continue to provide this vital support by donating to our Cash Assistance Appeal on Localgiving.
Cash assistance offers immediate respite from appalling hardship and emotional distress, while efforts are made to find a route out of destitution. This cash helps people cope whilst they seek advice to resolve their circumstances. Most cash is used for essential living costs like food, simple hygiene items, phone chargers, SIM cards to call loved ones or get online, essential to maintain contact with support services and legal representatives. The difference between having nothing in one’s pocket, no financial freedom at all, and having some hard cash is not to be underestimated.
