We provide emergency support for our most vulnerable clients and help support them through their hardship. Services we offer include:

 

Emergency Food Bank

We provide an emergency foodbank for our most vulnerable clients. We provide hundreds of food parcels every year to people struggling to make ends meet. Our generous partners provide us with food donations on a weekly basis.

We would like to thank: Sainsbury's, Tesco, Perry Rise Baptish Church and Lewisham Churches for Asylum Seekers (LEWCAS) and other individual donors.

You can donate non-perishable food items by visiting our office, or donating to a collection bin at the following stores:

HARDSHIP FUND

LRMN runs a hardship fund to help refugees, asylum seekers and migrants in times of financial crisis. The hardship fund is open to refugees, asylum seekers and migrants who:

  • Have no access to public funds, are not in paid employment or have no income from other sources;
  • Are eligible for benefits but have had benefits abruptly terminated/suspended and need temporary financial assistance until benefits are reinstated;
  • Were supported by the National Asylum Support Service (NASS) but lost eligibility after being granted Refugee Status and have no other source of income for several weeks.
