Helping Afghan evacuees - how to donate

Hampshire County Council is pleased to be working with local partners including our District and Borough councils, NHS, support providers and local charities to assist Afghan families moving to the UK to re-settle as part of the Government’s Afghan Relocation and Assistance Policy programme.

Aug 26 2021

A number of families have now been welcomed to the county and we are working hard to ensure they have all the local information they need and are made to feel welcome after what has been a very difficult and disorientating period in their lives.  


We are very grateful for the many offers of support to assist the evacuees. 

If you wish to donate an item, please visit the website of registered local charity Community First who are co-ordinating collections across the county. In addition to signposting to donation points, Community First has also published a list of priority items that are needed first and foremost. Please can we ask that items are either nearly-new or in good second-hand condition.  

If you’re an individual or local group/organisation wishing to make an offer of practical support, please email Community First at 

If you would like to make an offer of accommodation, please contact your local District or Borough Council in the first instance – some have information on their websites relating to this.
