Afghanistan Crisis - Bolton Response
As the current crisis continues to unfold in Afghanistan and people begin to arrive in Greater Manchester, Bolton CVS are working alongside our partner organisations within the Greater Manchester VCSE sector to build a collaborative, supportive response for people arriving in the region. We urgently appeal to any individual or organisation within the VCSE sector who can offer support.

How can you help? Alongside our partner organisations, Bolton CVS are appealing for the Bolton community to:

• Donate essential items There has already been overwhelming response of kindness and generosity by the public towards the donation of essential items, so we would like to extend a huge thankyou in the first instance. Urban Outreach Bolton will continue to welcome and recieve these donations and will store them for the longer term, until people are settled, so please keep them coming!
• Make a financial donation
• Volunteer at the distribution hub
