Your donations

Welcome pack items are essential for providing the initial gesture of kindness that we wish to extend to all those arriving in Scotland. You can find details below of all of the items that we need regularly and also some of those that we can’t accept. 


In order to be able to respond flexibly to the needs of those arriving; to raise awareness of refugee rights in the local community; and to host events that bring old and new Scots together, we rely on your cash donations. We can make your money go a really long way!

Donating essential items and dropping off

Refuweegee deliver over 300 welcome packs and support packs every month, from food and clothing to toiletries and pushchairs. Our welcome packs contain essential items like toiletries, stationery, Scottish items and your 'Letters fae the locals'. We've put together a list of the standard items that go into our welcome packs in our Welcome Pack Appeal and donations guide but there is no pressure to make up full packs, we can happily add to them. 

Your donations can be dropped off at our city-centre HQ where we have zero-contact donation boxes outside our delivery gate during the following times:

Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays

10.00am - 5.00pm


10.00am - 8.00pm

If you are donating technology items i.e. mobile phones or laptops, please contact enquiries@refuweegee.co.uk to arrange a drop-off appointment.  

Please remember our golden rule; if you wouldn't give it to someone you do know, don't give it to someone you don't know.
