Donate to support Akwaaba

At Akwaaba, we run support sessions twice a month for our 500+ refugee and migrant members.

Our fortnightly support includes:

  • Hot meals
  • Wellbeing activities
  • English classes
  • Arts sessions
  • IT support
  • Children's programs

Alongside this weekly support, we also provide sewing, a barbershop, food and travel assistance, signposting, referrals, grants, training, and workshops by local community partners on a regular but not weekly basis. At certain times, such as Christmas, we also support members with cash grants to help with cost of living. Most of our funding comes from grant fundraising, which can be time-consuming and come with usage restrictions, such as not allowing us to give cash grants. Your support can significantly impact the sustainability of our services. If you can, please consider donating or, even better, setting up a monthly subscription. Don't forget to gift aid if you choose to donate. 

You can make a one-off donation or sponsor us on a monthly basis. £20 per month allows one Akwaaba volunteer to access the fund every week.

Boost your donation with Gift Aid! We receive an extra 25p of Gift Aid for every £1 you donate


You can also donate by standing order, bank transfer or by cheque. Contact us for details
