Thank you so much for your continued support of JRS UK.
Your generous donation supports JRS UK in its mission to accompany, serve and advocate for refugees who find themselves destitute or detained as a direct result of the UK’s cruel and inhumane asylum system.
In particular your donation today contributes directly to the work of the volunteers and staff who assist our destitute refugee friends during the often-long wait for resolution to their situations.
The services our team provides includes:
"Thank you JRS - what you provide means a lot. Thank you for your careful attention and your continuous follow-up."

One of the greatest challenges faced by the refugees accompanied by JRS UK, is the lack of accommodation. The JRS At Home programme organises short term accommodation with individuals, parishes and religious communities for refugees who would otherwise be homeless.
If you live in the London area and have a spare room, you could make a huge difference to the life of refugee.
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.
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.
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.
