EERC Covid19 Emergency Appeal

We are raising money for an emergency fund to help vulnerable members of our community who are at extreme risk of destitution, and cannot afford food or other essential items at the moment. 


All of us have been hit hard by this pandemic. It is not a surprise that in these times, our biggest concern is our health and the health of our loved ones. At EERC we’re helping the most vulnerable and most affected members of our Eastern European communities.

The vulnerable members of our East European migrant community have to confront themselves as well with financial troubles, having been laid off, or struggling to make ends meet and put food on the table. These are people who are dealing with isolation, and additional obstacles to find alternative work.

Many of the people we support don’t qualify for any of the government’s schemes and are already falling through the cracks: homeless people, single mothers who’ve had to stop working to take care of their children, workers who have been laid off, or whose employer won’t apply for the government scheme, very destitute people who live in overcrowded accommodation where it is impossible to self-isolate, or older people who are struggling with isolation, their mental health, panic, and anxiety.

Our charity is here to help. Since this crisis began we’ve already helped over 400 people with job and benefits applications, advice and information. However, some really vulnerable people simply need direct help with money to pay for food.

We want to raise money for an emergency fund to help those in really desperate situations, who cannot afford food or other essential items at the moment.

We’ve been doing our best, but now we need your support too, and the support of wider Eastern European communities.

Please give what you can today, every contribution counts. All of the money donated through this campaign will go straight to the destitute people who need it most.

Now is the time to donate, come together, and offer a vital lifeline for people who need it most!
