Chish, ASSIST client

I felt rejected, alone and in despair until I found ASSIST. They provided a roof over my head, support and hope for the future.

ASSIST wouldn’t exist without its family of supporters

ASSIST Sheffield helps destitute asylum seekers by providing accommodation, advice and other support to those in most need or distress. We’re a charity and we’re totally reliant on volunteers, grants and the generosity of the people of Sheffield and the surrounding area.
