We can’t be with people in person this winter, but with your help we can make sure no one is left struggling to cope alone.
As we all still come to terms with the challenges the pandemic is having on our lives, refugees and people seeking asylum are more vulnerable than ever. Winter brings an added pressure to those already facing poverty, isolation and uncertainty, making life increasingly hard for families and those struggling to survive on their own.
Every day our caseworkers are online, on the telephone and behind the scenes, providing emergency support and advice to refugees across Scotland.
While we can’t provide our services in person right now, the need for our support is greater than ever.
This year we collaborated with some well-known Scottish storytellers, to help share some heart-breaking and inspiring stories from refugees in Scotland, and our caseworkers who support them.
Find out more about what people seeking safety here are going through, and why your support is so vital this winter.
And join us on 22nd December 2020 from 7pm-8.30pm, for a cosy evening of poetry, music and storytelling.
From heart warming fairytales to beautiful poetry and Syrian Christmas carols, and with special guest appearances from Jean Johansson, Eddi Reader and Katie Leung amongst a host of performers from around the world, this truly will be a magical evening for all the family to enjoy.
So get your mulled wine and mince pies ready, and we can’t wait to see you all there!
“Apart but Still Together” will be streamed via a bespoke link on Tuesday 22nd December, 7pm-8:30pm.
