Winter Destitution Appeal 2014

Still human, Still here

An urgent appeal for financial donations to give direct humanitarian relief and protection for destitute people seeking asylum in Glasgow and elsewhere in Scotland.

Over the next few weeks, Positive Action in Housing will be working to ensure that people who are destitute, or at risk of destitution, have access to basic survival essentials over the Winter holiday period.

Destitute asylum seekers are forbidden to seek work or access public funds or emergency homeless accommodation. Many have fallen into long term destitution and are part of Europe’s invisible citizens.

Everything we are offering is being donated by social housing providers, voluntary organisations, trade unions, universities, schools, faith groups and the people of Scotland. Read on to see how you can also contribute to this vital cause.

Give a Financial Donation

To give out emergency cash support over the winter period and beyond, we urgently need financial donations. Please note that ALL money donated to this appeal goes towards providing direct humanitarian relief to destitute refugees.
