MedSoc Charity of the Year:

Assist Sheffield is a local charity that works with asylum seekers who have been refused help by providing welfare support, through accommodation and access to invaluable services. Many of the people they help have fled from harrowing circumstances of violence and human rights violations in other countries.

Having started out in 2003, Assist Sheffield has grown to provide aid for over 90 individuals per week in Sheffield. With MedSoc’s help, we aspire to do so much more!

The MedSoc charity of the year is chosen by our members every year. MedSoc members nominate one local/national charity to support each year.  A vote is held after a new committee is elected; the winning charity is then selected as our annual charity.
