Challenging asylum destitution

Syrian refugee crisis - what can I do, where can I donate warm clothes?

We have had lots of enquiries about how Sheffield people can help with the current Syrian refugee crisis or support those Syrian refugees who arrive in our city as a result of the crisis..

The few families who arrive in Sheffield from the refugee camps on the Syrian border will be supported and accommodated through the joint Sheffield City Council / Refugee Council Gateway Protection Programme, and will not require hosting via ASSIST.

For information on how you can help please go to

Of course, we hope you will continue to support the work of ASSIST in helping those asylum seekers in our city who’s initial application for asylum is rejected and who are therefore destitute.
