Time 4 Coffee

Asylum seekers in the UK are staying in hotels for a long time. With their limited budget, they can’t afford to go out and socialise. This situation affects women more. As Time to Help, we organise ladies-only coffee mornings in the hotels and restaurants where they stay. With our volunteers, we prepare refreshments and chat with them. We also provide some arts and crafts for them to make during this time.

How does your donation change lives?

When you donate to the Time 4 Coffee project, you’re not just giving money; you’re gifting hope, companionship, and a sense of belonging to asylum-seeking women in the UK. Here’s how:

  • Combatting Loneliness: Many asylum seekers, especially women, experience profound isolation due to their limited resources and social opportunities. Your donation helps us organize more coffee mornings, directly reducing feelings of loneliness and despair.
  • Mental Health Support: The friendly and relaxed atmosphere of our coffee mornings has proven to enhance the mental well-being of participants. By donating, you’re directly contributing to the improved mental health of these women.
  • Skill Development: The arts and crafts sessions we provide are more than just a pastime. They offer a chance for these women to learn, express, and even discover potential career paths. Your contribution ensures we have quality materials for them to use.
  • Building Community: Every coffee morning is an opportunity for these women to connect, share stories, and form lasting bonds. Your donation ensures that these events continue, fostering a sense of community among participants.

By supporting the Time 4 Coffee project, you’re making a tangible difference in the lives of asylum-seeking women. Every penny goes towards creating more opportunities for connection, support, and growth. Donate today and be a part of this transformative journey!

What is the main objective of the Time 4 Coffee project?

“Time 4 Coffee” aims to support asylum-seeking women in the UK by organising ladies-only coffee mornings in hotel restaurants where they are staying.

Additionally, we offer arts and crafts sessions these mornings, allowing the women to express themselves creatively and learn new skills.

We’re always looking for compassionate individuals to join our team! As a volunteer, you can assist in various capacities, from helping set up the coffee mornings and engaging in conversations with the participants to leading arts and crafts sessions. Simply fill out the volunteer application form to volunteer. Once submitted, our team will contact you regarding the next steps and available opportunities.


We appreciate the kind gesture! However, for the safety and well-being of our guests, we only allow prepacked food with clear labels to be brought in. Unfortunately, this means homemade or cooked food from home cannot be accepted. This policy ensures that all food items are safe for consumption and that dietary restrictions or allergies can be easily identified and managed. Thank you for understanding and for your willingness to contribute to the project!
