This winter Scottish Refugee Council is launching a brand new, food-inspired fundraising campaign ‘Tastes from Home’, to raise vital funds for refugees living in Scotland.

Helping people feel safe, welcome and at home in Scotland is at the heart of our work. Every penny raised will help us ensure that refugees arriving in Scotland are welcomed, protected and given the support they need to rebuild their lives in safety.

How to get involved

Throughout December we will be sharing some mouth-watering recipes and encouraging you to try something new to support refugees in Scotland. From a festive feast with friends to a fine dining dinner date... there are lots of ways for you to get involved, host your own Tastes from Home event and raise some money for a great cause. Join us, as we explore some of the delicious cuisines refugees bring to Scotland and the amazing people and stories behind the food.

Every penny makes a difference to the men, women and children we support. For the price of a takeaway meal or a weekly food shop you could help refugees access vital advice and support. Donate today.

How your support will help

Every year Scottish Refugee Council supports over 1000 individuals, families and children. We provide essential information, advice and emotional support, so that people can begin to rebuild their lives in a sustainable and meaningful way. 

Scottish Refugee Council exists to help people who have fled conflict, persecution and human rights abuses, and are proud to be part of a movement in Scotland that welcomes those in need.

"I came to Scottish Refugee Council and they did everything to give me the support I needed to begin again. At times it felt impossible, but now I feel safe and at home here in Scotland."

 We work with people from all over the world - from Afghanistan, Syria, Iran, Sudan, Eritrea, Vietnam and many more – who make life in Scotland richer and more vibrant for everyone.

Join our Tastes from Home campaign and help us celebrate the rich culture that refugees bring to Scotland. If you’d like to find out more, get in touch with our fundraising team. Email us or call 0141 223 7958.
