News from Asylum Welcome

We are no longer accepting donated clothes at our office (due to space constraints) - however, our friends at Care4Calais will shortly be doing another distribution. 

Donations can be dropped at St Andrew's Church, Church Rd, Sandford-on-Thames OX4 4XZ from January 29th until February 3rd. Donations can be left on the porch of the church which is open from 9:30am to 6 pm.

The main needs at present are:

💥 Men's coats and winter clothing (hats, gloves and scarves)

💥 Jeans (smaller sizes, especially 32" waist)

💥 Men's shoes

💥 Men's socks and (new!) underwear

💥 Notebooks, headphones, and football boots!

If you could spread the word about this, it would be a fantastic help, thank you! 

We are still looking for volunteer hosts and guest buddies for Sanctuary Hosting. More info can be found on the Sanctuary Hosting webpage here.

If you'd be able to share the info that would be brilliant! If anyone is interested in either role they can contact: [email protected]

The other big thing we are looking for at the moment is translators! We have quite a lot of material that needs translating including our basic information for new clients in the hotels and a guide to the UK health system. 

Our main language needs are:

💥 Arabic 

💥 Farsi  

💥 Kurdish Sorani 

💥 Pashto 

💥 Tetum 

💥 Tigrinya  

💥 Urdu 

💥 French 

💥 Albanian

If anyone is interested in helping us with written translation tasks on an ad hoc basis, they can email: [email protected]
