The Big Give 2022!


Leicester City of Sanctuary has again been chosen to take part in the Big Give. Any money donated to us during this period via the link at the top of the page, or by clicking HERE will be doubled until the 6th December. If you've been thinking about supporting us, there's never been a better time to do so, and you'll be helping us continue to support refugees and asylum seekers in and around Leicester.

#DoubleTheImpact


Our mission is to welcome asylum seekers and refugees in and around Leicester, and support them to rebuild their lives, develop their skills and feel part of the community.

We offer a range of vital services and wider enrichment opportunities to asylum seekers and refugees: a central Hub with welcome, support services and a hot meal; ESOL classes; a football session; sewing & IT classes.

Our services run five days a week, supporting around 150 people each week. Services are delivered by a team of volunteers. Our service users are the lifeblood of the charity and we could not run it without their help. More than half the volunteer team running the drop-in at the Hub  are asylum seekers themselves.

Important information!
