What We Fund

We offer both long term and core cost funding and tailored development support to help your charity be more effective. We offer this funding to charities who meet our criteria and support people who are seeking asylum in the UK or have been granted refugee status in the last two years.

Visit our We Fund page or download our full eligibility criteria for more information.

What type of work we do and don’t fund

We support charities who assist people seeking asylum or have been granted refugee status in the last two years. This could include immigration advice, welfare advice and support to integrate into their local community.

To receive funding for work which includes immigration advice you will need to hold or be able to evidence that you are working towards OISC accreditation.

Questions your assessor will ask may include:

  • Of the refugees you work with, what proportion have had their application for asylum granted in the last two years?
  • How do you support your service users beyond the decision on their application?
  • If your services include immigration advice provision, do you have, or are you working towards OISC accreditation?
  • How do you work with other local services supporting people seeking asylum and refugees?

We're sorry

We're sorry, we can't recognise the local authority you entered. Please try again.
