Your donations

Welcome and essentials pack items are always needed 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!
