COVID-19 is especially affecting the most vulnerable among us. St. Augustine’s Centre in Halifax is supporting over 600 refugees, asylum seeking individuals and families, EU migrants and other vulnerable people across Calderdale.
Many need help accessing food, medical supplies, GP support and activities to deal with isolation. Few have easy access to Wi-Fi, some simply welcome someone to talk to.
St. Augustine’s is providing daily phone advice, takeaway lunches, a food parcel delivery service, online English Language tuition and accommodation support. Next up is the making and delivery of 300 activity packs.
