Help LJS Drop-in for Asylum Seekers gain vital grant

Aviva Community Fund

The Liberal Jewish Synagogue (LJS) Drop-in for Asylum Seeker Families has been nominated by insurance broker Heath Crawford and Foster Limited for a grant from the Aviva Community Fund.

The Aviva Community Fund offers the chance for local community projects to win funding, subject to a public vote.

Voting closes tomorrow (November 18). Instructions on how to vote can be found by clicking here. Please do it today!

To date, the Drop-in has registered over 300 adults and 400 children seeking asylum in the UK from 29 different countries. If successful, the Drop-in could be awarded £25,000 allowing it to continue for another year.

The LJS Drop-in for Asylum Seeker Families welcomes families with children under 16 who are fleeing persecution. It offers them a safe and welcoming environment in which to relax, a hot and nutritious meal, a supervised children’s’ play area, good quality second hand clothing, nappies, a shopping contribution, travel reimbursement and access to a solicitor, counsellor, doctor and social worker.

Rabbi Alexandra Wright, senior rabbi of the LJS, said: “The LJS Drop-in for Asylum Seeker Families provides a lifeline to some of the most vulnerable people in our society who find themselves unable to support their families.

“We are so grateful to everyone who has voted for us and hope that others will vote so that the Drop-in can continue to help these families.”
