Gloriavale Leavers Support Trust EMERGENCY WELFARE APPEAL 2021
Dozens have left Gloriavale in the past several weeks and it's expected to escalate. We need urgent funds to help families resettle!Canterbury
People are leaving Gloriavale at an escalating rate as pressure grows on the reclusive West Coast community.
For many years the Gloriavale Leavers’ Support Trust has supported those who leave the community to start new lives – providing everything from houses, to transport, to clothing, household goods and support as leavers get used to the ‘outside’ world.
We've now launched the Emergency Welfare Appeal to address the growing demand for financial support to help all those leaving Gloriavale get back on their feet.
It's crisis time and we need your help today.
Families leave quickly with few personal possessions, and very large families (sometimes more than 10 children). Thanks to amazing communities, we have plenty of access to clothing and furniture at present, but our most pressing need is for financial support.
Will you help us to help them?
