Description: The UK Lesbian & Gay Immigration Group (UKLGIG) supports LGBTQI+ people through the asylum and immigration process. Our vision is a world where there is equality, dignity, respect and safety for all people in the expression of their sexual or gender identity. Around the world more than 70 countries criminalise same sex relations. In five of these the death penalty can apply. Moreover, the persecution experienced by LGBQTI+ people goes well beyond any official prosecutions. The violence, humiliation, inequality and discrimination many LGBTQI+ people face can be enacted by state officials, but is also often experienced within their own communities and families without any recourse to protection. UKLGIG assists LGBTQI+ people seeking a safe haven from persecution. We provide psychosocial and emotional support for LGBTQI+ asylum seekers to help improve their mental health and reduce isolation. We also provide legal information and advice. In addition, we advocate for improved policies and practice by governments in LGBTQI+ asylum claims. We also continue providing support and information to LGBTQI+ people seeking to live in the UK with their partners via our website, an online forum and a monthly meeting.

Our charities range from big national charities to local schools, churches and social groups.
The donation amount varies from store to store. Most of the time you raise a percentage of what you spend - between 1% and 10% - whilst sometimes it's a fixed amount.
With some stores there are different rates or restrictions depending on what you buy - you can see more information on each store's page on our website.
Yes! You don't pay anything extra for your shopping, the donation is made at no extra cost to you.
It's also completely free for your charity. There are no joining or payment fees, so 100% of the donation will reach the charity.
We pay charities once a month by BACS via our payment partner, The Online Foundation.
You can view the status of every donation within your account. A donation will typically move from 'pending' to 'approved' to 'paid' over the course of a few months.
As a "thank you" for sending them sales and customers, our stores pay us a commission.
We use this commission to make a donation to your chosen charity.
We donate 50% of the commission we receive, with the other 50% used to fund the on-going development of Give as you Live, which is free to all charities and users.
All donation amounts we display represent the amount the charity will receive - a 5% donation means a 5% donation!
