Give the gift of community to refugees this Christmas.
As if making it to safer ground wasn’t hard enough, migrants arriving in Newcastle this winter face a daunting set of challenges. Navigating a new city, cold temperatures, making sense of a foreign culture and language while trying to simultaneously deal with legal claims and housing issues – all this with just over £5 a day to survive on and all the limitations of the Covid-19 pandemic. It’s a terrifying recipe for isolation. Our innovative twice-weekly InterAction Drop-in provides a welcoming, safe and supportive environment, giving migrants the chance to connect directly with the local agencies who can empower them to put down roots within their community. Whether it’s advice, support or warming up with a hot drink and a chat, if we can resolve just one issue for someone, they can leave with one less thing to worry about and start to transform their life.
