If none of these are possible, then there’s still loads you can do to lend support to our cause.

  • Follow us on Twitter or Facebook, and help us get our messages to a wider audience.
  • Read our website, and find out more about the reality of seeking refuge in Leeds.
  • Use the information you find to challenge some of the myths about migration.
  • Be kind to strangers, and give people the time of day.

We think all of this helps to make Leeds a kinder, safer, more welcoming place – and we’re grateful for any support you can offer. Thank you.

Fundraise

We would love you to do some fundraising for LASSN – anything from a few pounds to a few hundred pounds – no matter how small the donation, your fundraising would mean a great deal to us.

There are lots of ways you can fundraise – you may want to sell tickets for an event, have bucket collections, have a bun sale at work or set up a fundraising page for a sponsorship challenge. You can set up a page on Virgin Money Giving and share it on Facebook and social media.

Volunteer

270 people volunteered with LASSN in 2017/18. Our Volunteering Programme has been awarded the Leeds Volunteer Centre Kitemark

In exchange for your time and enthusiasm, we offer high quality training and support, and the chance to make a real difference to someone’s life.

If you are thinking about becoming a volunteer, then please complete our online application form and we’ll be in touch as soon as we can.

Due to the nature of our work, we ask that our volunteers are willing to commit to volunteering with us for at least 6 months.

If you don’t think you can make this commitment, then you may find something more suitable via the Leeds Volunteer Centre.
