Story

Want to be a part of the first community refugee sponsorship in Scotland?

We are a small group of Edinburgh residents bringing a Syrian refugee family to our city under the community sponsorship scheme. Our family will be joining us at the end of May – mum, dad, and four young children, including a small baby.

We’ve already raised enough to give them a good start, including language lessons and enough money to let them settle in. But we want to do more.

At a minimum, we’d like to raise enough money to furnish the flat completely, to provide at least a month’s worth of bus passes for the family, and to cover their bills until the benefits kick in. We’d also like to provide a deposit on the flat that we can donate to the family, and to raise a bit extra for anything unexpected.

If you would like your donation to go toward one of these budget items specifically, please just leave a comment saying as much.

Thank you for helping us give this family the best possible start!
