The Mayor of Calderdale Councillor Ferman Ali will be doing a skydive in support of St. Augustine's Centre and the work we do here. His mission is: To exceed the target of £2,000 in donations and he currently has 6% of this target! Please help by sponsoring Councillor Ali https://www.give.net/MayorsCharity/fundraising and/or spreading the word! All donations go straight to us and each donation makes a massive difference – however little or large! Don't forget to Gift Aid your donation so your donation will go even further 😊
If just half of our Facebook and Twitter friends were able to spare £1 a month , we would raise over £7100 a year which is a massive amount for a small charity like us! Also if you were to complete a Gift Aid form we could claim back even more from your £1 donation - something to think about...... Thank you for your continued support!

We’re thrilled! On Friday 9th March, two of our amazing centre users, Vee and Florence, were awarded the UNHCR/Migrants Organise Women on the Move Award. The 2018 Women on the Move Awards, presented by UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, and Migrants Organise, recognised exceptional refugees and those working on their behalf for their outstanding work in empowering women. They were given the award for founding Sisters United. This is the women’s group that Lora our Support Programme Leader started a few months ago at St. Augustine’s. It’s now constituted as a separate charity but obviously retains very strong links to St Augustine's Centre. [...]
