In response to the high levels of destitution amongst asylum seekers in Leeds WYDAN piloted a shelter last winter. Over the course of the shelter we recruited 13 host organisations with over 400 volunteers and provided 417 nights of accommodation to 15 individual men. Unfortunately there is no end to destitution and we are planning to run the shelter again this winter 2016. To enable us to run the shelter we urgently need to raise funds so that we may cover the running costs of the shelter.

For further information please take a look at our website where you can find information about WYDAN and the report from last year’s winter shelter.

If you could help us in any way we would be extremely grateful whether it be a financial contribution or if you are able to help us fundraise in other ways.

Thank you
