Donating – money or goods

Asylum Link does not get any funds from the government. It is supported by a variety of trust funds and donations. It needs much more to continue functioning.


Donations are welcome or, for those who wish to be more involved, membership of ALM is an option. There are a variety of ways to make a donation:  donate by text or on-line,  download a donation form or membership form, or you could  contact us at ALM with your donation.
