Get involved

Your support can help transform the lives of vulnerable people who have fled persecution, escaped from slavery or found themselves in a situation that they do not understand. There are lots of ways you can make a difference including volunteering, making a donation or fundraising. Find out how you can get involved.

  • Trusts and foundations

    Many of our projects would not be possible without the support of trusts and foundations. They make a tremendous difference to what we can achieve.

  • Corporate support

    We recognise the important role that the private sector can play in positive social development and tackling exploitation. You can help us by donating to a project or event or by giving in kind support.

  • Give monthly

    Your regular donation can help rebuild the lives of families who have fled persecution; give hope to those imprisoned in slavery; and give re-assurance to those who find themselves in a situation that they do not understand.

  • Cristian’s Story:
    Two years ago I had nothing. No food and nowhere to live. I’d managed to shower maybe twice a year. Now, thanks to Migrant Help, I have safe accommodation, new clothes and they have helped me see doctors for my health problems. Most of all, they have listened to me. I’m so thankful for everything they’ve done. They’re like a family to me now.
  • Stefan’s Story:
    Many nights my children would go to bed hungry. My wife Tasaria and I gave them whatever food we had, but it was rarely enough. Their clothes were worn through. But with no money, I’m ashamed to say I’d even looked in rubbish bins for clothes other families had thrown out.
