Story

We are delighted that thanks to the generous support of our donors that we have exceeded our initial target for this appeal. Please note should you still wish to donate that your generous donations will still be used to support the activities listed and enable us to buy even more care packs and presents for the refugee community of Newcastle. Thank you!

N.E.S.T is raising money to buy essential care packs and holiday gifts for refugee and asylum seeker families who are living in very difficult situations in the region.

N.E.S.T is supporting hundreds of children who will go without this holiday period and families who are in need of basic items including underwear, shoes, and toiletries.

Please donate today to give your support to the refugee and asylum seeker families in the North East this winter period.

A small donation can help go towards buying some nappies for a mother in need or a football for a recently arrived child from Afghanistan. All money raised will go towards providing support for refugee and asylum seeker families in the North East. Watch our video below that highlights some of the vital work N.E.S.T already does in our community.

N.E.S.T is a student volunteer group who provide teaching and holistic support for members of the forced migration community. Newcastle University students volunteer their time to teach and support every day on campus. This winter appeal aims to meet a need for both basic support and also for some fun, hope and happiness for children.

Donate today and join our donor community in supporting refugees in the North East.

N.E.S.T is an incredibly special project that gives practical assistance, friendship and hope to refugee and asylum seeking families across Newcastle. My family and I are pleased to be able to support this appeal to raise funds for gifts for children who may otherwise not receive a present over the holiday season. (Paul, N.E.S.T donor and Newcastle University employee)
