Started on 1st July 2021 Brighton, England, United Kingdom

Voices in Exile is the main provider of essential food for destitute refugees and asylum seekers in Brighton & Hove. Unfortunately, our food bank needs to relocate to another venue due to building works that are taking place from autumn 2021 to spring 2022. This will temporarily increase our running costs, and we are now raising money to keep our vital service operating.

 

Over the course of the COVID pandemic we have successfully delivered culturally appropriate food parcels to our vulnerable clients every week. We support asylum seekers and refugees across the city and beyond, and aim to provide long term help if needed while we work to resolve the causes of destitution through our casework and advice team. We are now regularly delivering critical food parcels to over 100 migrants, many of whom are families with children who cannot apply for benefits or other financial assistance and have been denied help elsewhere.   We can only provide this important service thanks to the hard work of our dedicated staff and volunteers, and with crucial support from donors.

 

Our food bank is a highly championed and valued service and we rely heavily on the backing of our local community. Please donate and share our Crowdfunder so that we can continue to provide this key food bank service throughout the refurbishment and relocation.
