Can YOU help the InterAction Drop-in team support people seeking asylum who have newly arrived in Newcastle with just the clothes they are stood up in.
InterAction Drop-in Manager Yvonne Cheung told us: “The people who have been placed in hotels are badly isolated and do not even have a change of clothing. We hope to help people return to some kind of regularity as the Covid restrictions ease off by encouraging them to participate in social activities from June, so people need more gear.”
