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!

Donate essential items

Refuweegee deliver over 100 welcome packs every month, each one containing essential items like toiletries and stationery, Scottish items and your 'Letters fae the locals'. We've put together a list of the items that go into our welcome packs in our Welcome Pack Appeal and donations guide and are hugely grateful for anything that you are able to contribute.

We also run two large pop-up events each month, where we provide individuals and families with the opportunity to select items that they need.

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.
