Donation Page for Stockport Refugees Appeal


The work with asylum seekers at Stockport Baptist Church continues as we have seen a steady inflow of new people over the last 12 months.

Our most pressing need is some accommodation for those who have been refused visas and have been made destitute by the Home Office. They are not allowed to work, do not receive any benefits, cannot legally rent any accommodation and are in limbo , waiting to apply for a 'fresh claim'.

We currently have 4 of our asylum seekers in this situation and are trying to support them with food, pocket money, transport costs and somewhere to stay. We have managed to acquire a small 3 bedroomed shared apartment in the centre of Stockport temporarily, which we are able to put up to 3 destitute asylum seekers but we need to cover the cost of the rent of approximately £400 a month.
