SHARe – Support & Help for Asylum seekers and Refugees.
We are a group of like minded people who want to do something to try and improve the lives of those who have left their homes and everything they know to escape the horrors of persecution, violence, war and oppression.
On a local level, we hope to create a support network for asylum seekers and refugees who may live near us, giving them the assistance they need to live with dignity, so that they can rebuild their lives. Offering friendship is at the heart of everything we do. We have established close links with the British Red Cross and MRANG who both have outreach workers that are often at the drop-in to give casework advice and support.
We also aim to provide support further afield by giving assistance where we can, be it in the form of financial contributions or donations of clothing and food.
We currently have a weekly drop-in in Prescot at the Methodist Church Hall starting at 11.30pm with an English class at 1-3pm. If you have to get the bus to reach us, then we will refund your bus fare.
Come and join us where you will receive a warm welcome with a hot cup of tea or coffee and a snack. We often have basic foodstuffs including fresh fruit and vegetables for sale at a nominal price as well as clothing and toiletries.
Conversation and English vocabulary activities to help improve English are available and we can offer advice with missed NASS payments, accessing GPs and other services as well as any other problems that may arise. We will help you get to know Knowsley and support you in finding your way about.
