Donate to help us support newly arriving asylum-seekers
At West London Welcome we directly support hundreds of newly-arriving asylum-seeking people who have made life-threatening journeys to reach safety, with our day centre, clothes, foodbank, technology, household items, English classes, legal advice clinics, social activities and community outings.
We are renewing our appeal for donations to continue our essential holistic work. Your gift will help us be ready to support new arrivals from Afghanistan whom we hope will arrive in West London very soon – we previously collaborated with our local council to support resettled Syrian families and look forward to starting this work again. Your support also helps us to assist Afghan asylum seekers already in our community who had to make their own life-threatening journeys here alone – as well as others from 40+ other countries who have fled traumatic life circumstances.

Donate to our everyday running costs with a regular donation
Regular donations to West London Welcome – especially monthly direct debits – helps cover the costs of running our space and activities, so we’re really grateful for your support. A regular donation will allow us to meet the increasing needs of the refugees, asylum seekers and migrants we support: our casework is intensifying, and the number of our service-users has doubled during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are supporting some people in our community in every aspect of their lives, from housing, to phone credit, to daily food. For those forbidden from accessing benefits and work, they are depending on our support to meet their essential needs and stay alive. Additionally, we have ambitious and exciting plans for the future which your donation could help us realise – more English classes, coffee mornings, a youth club, family evenings, and taking on our first full-time paid staff member for casework and admin. You can donate to the running costs of our centre on our Localgiving page here.
