I’m pleased to be able to share Asylum Welcome’s report on our work in 2019/20 – work in which you have played such a valuable part. We wanted to show our loyal and committed supporters how we have spent your money and what you have helped achieve, whether as a volunteer, a member, a donor or a long-term supporter.
Before the impact of Covid, we were able to directly assist about 1,500 refugees, asylum seekers and vulnerable migrants, and through them many more family members. And in the last six months, we have adapted and, in many cases, increased our work to help those most affected and in greatest need. Many long-serving volunteers and donors have stuck with us. New ones have come along when we have needed them most. The extra needs and practicalities of working safely and effectively in a Covid environment are certainly stretching all of us and costing us more.
With deep appreciation on behalf of all those we work for and with,
