£100 helps JRS UK offer casework advice and support to refugees
In light of the global coronavirus pandemic, JRS UK has taken the difficult decision to temporarily suspend our weekly drop-in Day Centre. We have set up a new Emergency Response Team to distribute food parcels and hygiene packs to the most vulnerable refugee friends we support, taking the essential, practical and emotional help from our Day Centre onto the road.
Our advice and support services have been under huge demand as many refugee friends find themselves street homeless, in precarious living arrangements, alone and anxious about access to basic needs. With your support JRS UK can provide consistency and attention to the needs of our refugee friends which aren’t being met elsewhere.

Every month, JRS UK welcome more than 300 refugees left destitute by the asylum system, and visit scores of people held in detention. Our refugee friends find comfort and hope be feeling accompanied during difficult situations. A donation every month will ensure the consistency and reliability of our services to support refugees in the UK.
You can help raise money for JRS anytime you shop on-line through Give As You Live. Over 3,000 on-line retailers will give a donation to us as a charity every time you make a purchase. This income provides resources for setting up smaller projects that we cannot get grants for.
Gift Aid is a government scheme that allows charities to reclaim tax on a donation made by a UK taxpayer, which means your donations to JRS UK will be worth 25% more to us at no extra cost to you.
If you Gift Aid your donations we can claim back from the government 25p for every £1 you donate to JRS UK. This additional income really does make a big difference, so please don’t forget to Gift Aid your donations if you are a UK tax payer.
