Would you like to donate to the ARC Project? Donations mean we can continue to provide the vital support asylum seekers and refugees in Blackburn with Darwen need.  

If so you could make a one off payment, or set up a monthly standing order to support the project financially. Please contact us to find out how to do this.

Our food bank can accept donations of: Breakfast Cereal, Flour, Long Life Fruit Juice, UHT Milk, Cooking Oil, Tea & Coffee, Sugar, Lentils, Tinned Fruit, Tinned Vegetables or Carrots.  (Please do not bring: baked beans or tinned soup.)

We no longer take in donations of household goods or clothing.  We are excited to announce that we have converted  the space previously used to store these donations into a computer suit for our Job Club!  

If you do have baby or children's clothing (including local school uniforms) and equipment or household house items to donate, can we suggest that you get in touch with with one of the following fantastic local charities.  We have a great working partnerships with both and offer a voucher system with our service users allowing them to access them according to need.
