Emergency Food Support

Emergency Food Support

Destitution is a huge problem among asylum seekers, one that pushes them to the brink of our society. Asylum seekers have to wait months or years for the outcome of their asylum claim, during which time they are prohibited from working and only receive minimal or no financial support. As a result, asylum seekers are reliant on charities and their own limited social networks to make ends meet. We have been running a Drop-In to support destitute asylum seekers since 2006. Our Drop-In is currently providing emergency food and clothing to destitute asylum seekers and refugees while they are in the transition period. This service has been funded by kind donations from individuals, schools, Harrow Food Bank and local faith groups.
