In Liverpool, the Red Cross, working in partnership with Refugee Action and Asylum Link Merseyside, has developed a five-year project to support asylum seekers at risk of, or experiencing, destitution.
The Neighbourhood Links project in Northern Ireland aims to reduce the social isolation of older people in the district council areas of Omagh and Fermanagh.
We are supporting vulnerable female refugees and asylum seekers before and after their pregnancies to ensure they get the support they need, thanks to a grant of £9,210 from Big Lottery Fund.
This project is helping 400 refugees and asylum seekers annually to survive destitution, access essential services and feel less isolated.
Thanks to a grant of £273,023 from the Big Lottery Fund in 2010, the support service is helping over 1,050 refugees and asylum seekers to survive destitution, access vital services and meet their needs independently.
Over 12 months, this project will provide a minimum of 350 people in the town of Blaenau Ffestiniog, Gwynedd, with the skills, knowledge and confidence necessary to save a life in the event of an emergency or accident.
This project provides assistance to over 1,400 asylum seekers and refugees in crisis, helping them access vital services and adjust to life in the UK.
From material support to employment training, this Big Lottery Fund project in Birmingham enables refugees and asylum seekers to survive destitution.
Through a £998,452 Big Lottery Fund grant, the British Red Cross has expanded its support for vulnerable older people in North Wales four times over.
