We warmly welcome donations from the public through PayPal and a service called localgiving.com

All of the proceeds that we receive go into our hardship fund. This enables us to provide financial support to asylum seekers who have no recourse to public funds. The money goes towards essentials like food, nappies, pay as you go phone top ups and travel expenses to home office appointments.

Donate Items

We are also very much in need of both new and unwanted items. Asylum seekers are arriving in the UK in urgent need of basic essentials, unable to work and unable to access state funds. Our mission is to share what we can with them in their time of need.

These are our current item needs as of 18/05/2021:

We strive to match all donations with the needs of our clients and as such, we ask that anything you do give is clean and in an acceptable condition, such that it can be re-used. Anything that cannot be directly used will be sold to raise funds for the hardship fund mentioned above.

Please call 07514639967 during working hours or email ben.charman@refugeeactionkingston.org.uk if you have any questions or would like to make a donation. 

Thank you!
