There are lots of ways to be involved in the work of Boaz.
The Boaz Trust relies on the generosity of individual supporters and trust funds in order to provide accommodation and support to destitute asylum seekers. Our asylum seeker beneficiaries have no recourse to public funds and no where else to turn to for help. If you can give a one off donation or a regular monthly gift this will help us to provide essential accommodation and holistic support to destitute asylum seekers and refugees in Greater Manchester.
We are grateful for the many volunteers that support the work of Boaz. In the last year volunteers have contributed to weekly activites with clients, run the monthly free shop, cooked meals, provided transport, taught English and raised awareness about the plight of asylum seekers and the work of the Boaz Trust. The list goes on. Please get in touch if you would like to join our volunteer team.
The Boaz Trust is a Christian organisation and we believe matters such as destitution, asylum, injustice and poverty are on God’s priority list. Please sign up for our newsletter for updates on our work, and pray for changes to the asylum system that will put an end to destitution. If you would like a speaker to attend a prayer meeting please contact us.
We want to see change to the UK asylum system that put an end to destitution. That is why we have joined with national groups like ‘Still Human, Still Here’ to campaign for changes. Visit the Campaigns page for more info.
On the Road
The Boaz team like getting out and about and meeting new people who care about asylum seekers. We’re happy to share our knowledge with people who would like to know more about asylum seekers. If your church or community group would like a Boaz speaker to visit please get in touch.
Not in Manchester?
Whilst the Boaz Trust focuses on supporting destitute asylum seekers in Manchester, our Director Dave Smith also leads a national network called NACCOM (the No Accommodation Network). NACCOM encourages like-minded organisations and churches across the country to support destitute asylum seekers and refugees. See the Not in Manchester page for further details.
