Refugee Action - Colchester provides an essential service for new members of our community who have often made their way to our beautiful town through danger, from countries experiencing war and hardship. Sometimes their faith, political allegiance or sexual orientation has made them vulnerable. Without our help there are many families and individuals who would not be able to access statutory services or find the extra help and support we can give them. We enable refugees and asylum seekers to find jobs, study, make friends and become a part of the community. We offer advocacy, translation, small grants and gifts which make all the difference. A large part of what we do is through our facebook page where we liaise with members of the Colchester public who offer help - furniture, clothing, conversation, expertise and friendship. In one weekend the people of Colchester helped us equip an entire house ready for a family newly arrived from Sudan who had literally nothing. Their 3 small children are all now in school or childcare and the parents are taking intensive English language classes.
If you join the Essex Lottery we and other worthwhile local causes will benefit from your money.
With sincere thanks and appreciation for the way in which our community already helps, and in the hope that we can do more and change more lives through further support from you.
