Refugee Support Devon’s work with families relocated to the UK via the Government’s Vulnerable Persons Relocation Scheme is supported by Devon County Council. All our other services – drop-in, outreach, destitution fund, immigration clinic and education/employment support – are completely reliant for their funding on grants and private donations. All donations are welcome, no matter how big or small, and all contribute towards our on-going work with the local refugee community. We are grateful to everyone who provides donations, it makes a real difference in someone else’s life.

Other kinds of donation
We are always happy to receive vouchers that can be redeemed in High Street shops, on public transport services or against household utility bills, however it is best to contact us before you buy these vouchers so we can tell you what we need most. Unfortunately, however, RSD is a small charity and we have very little storage space so we cannot accept donations of clothing, furniture, household goods, toys, food or similar items except in response to our specific appeals. If you have items like this which you wish to donate we recommend you contact RAFT (Refugee Action from Taunton) – you can find them via their Facebook page. If you would like to donate your time by volunteering with RSD we would love to hear from you. Please visit our volunteering page for more information.
