The Welcome Fund aims to raise money to offer financial support to refugees and migrant workers (particularly those at risk of or having experienced modern slavery) in Cornwall.

Organisations can apply for funds between £500 – £5,000 for:

  • Activities and support services
  • Community integration
  • Provision of essential items for individual refugees

Where grants are for essential items for individuals or families we ask that no more than £250 is made available to any one individual/family. These can be distributed as an onward payment to the individual or through:

  • Purchases on behalf of the individual
  • Providing supplies such as food, clothing, practical items
  • Purchasing alternative vouchers or gift card
