This winter, 68.5 million people have been forced from their homes. 40 million have been internally displaced. 25.4 million people are refugees fleeing war and persecution.
In Scotland and the rest of the UK too, the number of destitute and insecurely housed refugees and asylum seeking children, families, women and men has risen.
Winter is the toughest time for the people we support throughout the year. It’s doubly hard being far away from loved ones at a time when families traditionally getting together for Christmas.
Positive Action in Housing has been a lifeline, providing winter emergency relief for over 16 years.
Last Winter, you helped almost 2,000 people from refugee and asylum seeking communities.
Together we can save even more lives this winter, helping vulnerable people find emergency relief in the short term, and long term resolution.
