Every donation really counts. We do not receive any government or grant funding and because of this we are reliant on your donations. We are run solely by volunteers, so we are able to maintain very low running costs. These costs have been met in full by one of our benefactors.
We are therefore able to guarantee that 100% of the donations we receive go directly to families in need.
A regular donation is a convenient way for you to make a regular gift. Regular gifts allow us to predict our future income and allow us to plan ahead accordingly. You can make a regular donation securely online through our Virgin Money page here.

Why support refugee family reunion?
For many refugees the process of getting their families to the UK can be long and problematic. The main obstacles facing people in this situation are the cost and arrangements associated with their family’s travel.
Desperate to be reunited with their families some refugees go to extreme lengths to raise the money for their family’s travel including going without food and borrowing from anyone who’ll lend it. Some are forced to bring family members over separately as they can afford it meaning children can be sent unaccompanied which can leave them vulnerable to trafficking and abuse.
Supporting refugee family reunion can help victims of persecution begin to rebuild their lives as a family unit.
