You can make a difference to
vulnerable and destitute people seeking safety in Scotland
Donate, volunteer, become a member, fundraise, raise awareness or raise funds while you shop… Big or small, there’s something each of us can do to help make Scotland a more welcoming, inclusive, safe place for refugees and people seeking asylum, where they can live free of destitution and reach their full potential as individuals and in our communities.
Do you believe there’s a better, fairer life for people seeking safety in Scotland? Then please join us. We can only do what we do thanks to the generosity, support and expertise of people like you.
