A KIRKLEES help group is at crisis point.
Now the group is appealing for help to keep it afloat.
Kirklees Refugees and Friends Together (Kraft) could have to slash services due to a three-month gap in finances.
The organisation, which was founded just over five years ago, has supported the needs and welfare of more than 3,000 asylum seekers and refugees .
Pam Bye, founder of the Huddersfield-based group, said: "Since our inauguration we have developed from a small group of dedicated volunteers into an organisation with experienced and skilled full-time staff whose work is widely recognised throughout the country as leading the field."
She said much of the group's funding had now come to an end, but even if more grants were secured there would be a 90-day gap starting in March with no money.
She added: "It will therefore be difficult to maintain the essential welfare, legal and administrative support our clients have come to rely on.
"Our team does an excellent job on behalf of some of the most vulnerable and destitute people in Yorkshire and we need financial support so that they can continue this vital work."
She said she was calling on local organisations to help with donations or sponsorship or local companies who may be able to sponsor a Kraft worker.
