Help support our vital work this year and beyond

We need to raise over £70,000 a year to support our vital work, so any amount you can give –  large or small –  is hugely valued. Your gift will go directly towards our core services, including emergency funding for destitute asylum seekers and access to legal advice. SWVG is a highly effective charity (charity number 1103093) operating in the Southampton and Winchester area. You can learn more about our work and find our how you could get involved here.

Your donations keep SWVG doing life changing work in the community. Most of this is done by volunteers, giving their time and talents to keep our costs as low as possible. We:

  • enrich the lives of asylum seekers during the difficult period of waiting to hear if they will be allowed to stay in the UK, adjusting to life here with little money and no right to work;
  • campaign and raise awareness of the issues affecting people seeking sanctuary ion the UK
  • provide practical support, financial assistance and accommodation for those on the brink of crisis; teach English; and befriend.

SWVG works directly with those who need help, with over 50 trained volunteers offering one-to-one befriending and support to local asylum seekers and refugees, or helping them learn English.

Please take a moment to donate to us today and help change a life.
